Sometimes the choice is not between right and wrong, but between good and better. Yet any choice we make will be the right one if made with these words of Jesus in mind: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” – Mt 6:33 “Ruth’s” Noble Choice to follow Naomi and her God illustrates the truth of Jesus’ words!
Love requires the ability to choose. The reason we’re free to disobey God is that we need to be free to love if we are to be human, and made in the image of a God who loves. Love can only be love if it’s a free choice. A husband forced up the aisle at gunpoint can’t be trusted when he swears undying love!
