The scripture for today, January 16, is Ruth 1:16ff as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
Although Ruth was talking to her mother-in-law after the death of her husband (Naomi’s son), this can be and sometimes is quoted by the bride and groom at their wedding. If only it were quoted more often. Not only at weddings, but at anniversaries. At birthdays of children and parents. During arguments, and low times and hard times and discouraging times.
These are the words of love ~ deep genuine, unselfish love. Let us so love one another that deeply.
