Sharing Our lives

Acts 20:35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ 

Your people will be my people and your God my God. Ruth 1:16

This is who I call my Naomi. Shout out to my spiritual mother

How much of my own life, and really all of human experience, is marked by a stubborn resistance to freely and generously give to others?

As believers in Jesus, we’re called to share our very lives with one another. Ruth did just that with her mother-in-law, Naomi. As a destitute widow, Naomi had little to offer Ruth. And yet Ruth connected her own life to her mother-in-law’s, vowing that they would press on together and that not even death would separate them. She said to Naomi, “Your people will be my people and your God my God” (Ruth 1:16). She freely and generously gave to the older woman—showing love and compassion.

While sharing our lives in this way can be difficult, we should remember the fruit of such generosity. Ruth shared her life with Naomi, but later she bore a son, the grandfather of King David. Jesus shared His very life with us, but was then exalted and now reigns Yat the right hand of the Father in heaven. As we generously share with one another, we can be confident that we will experience greater life still!

Jesus, as we share our lives with others, may we reflect Your loving heart.


[shout out to Mama T in the above photo added. A Wonderful woman of God that I cherish and love! If you do not have a wise woman of God in your life to help mentor, lead and give you constructive criticism – pray that God will bless you with one. You need someone to hold you accountable. Iron sharpens iron.
