Choosing Loyalty, Love, and Courage

The Word of God is full of stories of exiles, immigrants, and refugees. How might these stories encourage us to choose loyalty and love? We are also reminded of this love through the example of Jesus Christ. In our daily routine, how can we show mercy and love like Jesus?

But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to abandon you, to turn back from following after you. Wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you stay, I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord do this to me and more so if even death separates me from you.”  Ruth 1:16-17
