You Are Noticed

“‘Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me — a foreigner?’ Boaz replied, ‘I’ve been told all about what you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband — how you left your father and mother and your homeland and came to live with a people you did not know before’” (Ruth 2:10-11).

People notice what we do and say, both the good and the bad. Ruth’s behavior earned her a good reputation. Everyone knew her to be a woman of good character. She was caring, humble and a hard worker. She made sacrifices for those she loved. She was brave. She did not run after young men.

All this brought honor to God, and for all this, she was blessed.

How is your reputation? People notice your words and actions, and it affects their opinion of you and of Christ. Let your life be a shining reflection of who He is. Bring honor to God, and you will be blessed.
