And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. Ruth 1:16-17 (KJV)
What a declaration from a faithful daughter-in-law! Ruth had enjoyed such love from her mother-in-law that it was her turn to lavish the same love and more on her mother-in-law. It is good to recognize the mark of kindness that we enjoy from people so that when the occasion presents itself, we can demonstrate even greater kindness to them. Dear reader, have you ever enjoyed extreme kindness from somebody? Share it with us!
