Today's Favorite Verse: Ruth 4:14-15

Today's Favorite Verse: Ruth 4:14-15
"And the woman said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.
And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him."

After the relative that had first rights of marry Ruth refuses Boaz then marries her. He raises up seed to her dead husband and his family. So Naomi now has a grandson. As Ruth says these words to Naomi she is prophesying. These are more than words meant for Naomi. For from this line will come the Savior, the restorer of life, the nourisher, and redeemer. Never was a child more cherished. Never would the earth know a line that showed greater love for humankind.

Day 811
