“But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.””

‭‭Ruth‬ ‭1:16-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Oft quoted and often misunderstood, this passage speaks not of a romantic relationship but of a spiritual one. Just as Ruth was willing to give up all that was familiar to follow her mother-in-law Naomi, you and I must be willing to step out of our comfort zones to follow Christ wherever he leads us. This often means traveling through painful, difficult spaces we would never choose on our own, but the Shepherd stays with us the whole way. Are you willing to say you would rather climb steep, treacherous descents with Him than walk through smooth meadows without Him?🚦
