DO NOT WEARY IN DOING GOOD
Ruth didn’t wave a banner, nor sound a trumpet, nor yell into the marketplaces, before she sacrificed her own desires and dreams, and directed her remaining years into the service of her widowed mother-in-law, Naomi. She just did it, hidden and in secret. However, the Lord repaid her openly in His sight and the sight of man!
Let us not weary in well doing for we know our Lord is faithful and trustworthy. What is hidden will not remain hidden and what was done in the dark will come to the light; and what has been done in secret will be recompensed/rewarded by our Father in heaven.
“Then Boaz said to Ruth, "Now, listen, my daughter, do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but keep close to my young women. Let your eyes be on the field that they are reaping, and go after them. Have I not charged the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink what the young men have drawn." Then she fell on her face, bowing to the ground, and said to him, "Why have I found favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?" But Boaz answered her, "All that you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband has been fully told to me, and how you left your father and mother and your native land and came to a people that you did not know before. The Lord repay you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge!" Then she said, "I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, for you have comforted me and spoken kindly to your servant, though I am not one of your servants."”
— Ruth 2:8-13
