Ruth Truth 11: Camp under Favour

Ruth Truth 11: Camp under Favour

"8 So Boaz said to Ruth, ‘My daughter, listen to me. Don’t go and glean in another field and don’t go away from here. Stay here with the women who work for me. 9 Watch the field where the men are harvesting, and follow along after the women. I have told the men not to lay a hand on you. And whenever you are thirsty, go and get a drink from the water jars the men have filled.’ Ruth 2:8-9

Verb for today: GO, or rather, DON'T GO

Boaz is telling Ruth to stay where the favour is. Don't venture into other fields. There is favour here. There is protection here.

Found a good local church where there is life and you can grow? Excellent! Stay and be rooted.

When it comes to investing, we all have different personalities, styles, passions and interests. What comes naturally to you may not for me. What you are familiar with (eg cybersecurity or pharma) may not be my area of expertise.

You need to stay in your lane. Stay where you know favour is flowing. Whether it is your job or your investment.

Remain, don't go. Camp under the favour.
