As I mentioned yesterday, I did search the Bible for answers. One place I looked was Ruth. I knew that Ruth had to go out to find food to provide for her and her Mother-in-law, Naomi. She did this by going into a person’s fields and picking up the leftover grain that the pickers dropped.
I did notice something that answered one of my questions. Once in verse 1:9 and then again in 3:1 the phrase find rest is said. In both cases they are talking about Ruth going into a home to find rest. Basically to be provided for, is the explanation I found when I researched a little bit. This to me says that we are to be provided for. I do not have to be responsible for providing for our home.
To answer one of my questions-
Do I have to provide for my home?
As I see it from this and other places in the word. No, I do not have to. Can I? Ruth did in this passage but she was not married. So that will be the topic/question for tomorrow. Until then if you have never read Ruth take a look ,it is a very short book.
