Summary

The reality of a life totally surrendered to God is seen beautifully in the story of Naomi and Ruth. Their testimony of yielding to God’s will, embracing him alone as Lord and allowing his glory to be seen, shines out in a time when so many were doing what was right in their own eyes. We see the same spirit of obedience and faith in the unnamed widow at the temple treasury.  A heart resigned, submissive, meek, my great Redeemer’s throne, is very precious in the sight of God.
