Pass it on: the Bible verse that matters to me

Ruth 1 v 16

There is a determination in Ruth's words that struck me the first time I read it. As an orphan I felt her loss of family and love. She showed love and devotion to the family in whose country she would be an alien and an outcast. My foster mother was harsh but she made me read the Bible. That legacy has stood me in such good stead. Eventually I was adopted into a family that welcomed me and made me feel part of them. How important it is to show Christ's sacrificial love to each other!
