Dear Friend of Vision
“But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. (Ruth 1:16)
For those of us in leadership, and especially if we are primarily goal oriented and driven, loyal people are the best. In fact, we generally hate disloyalty, and have issues with trust…of course, we have all been burnt a time or two. Ruth was loyal, and her loyalty paid off. She was loyal to her husband, then to Naomi, and eventually to Boaz, and she did not just talk about loyalty, she demonstrated it. To be a leader requires the ability to serve, to follow and to sacrifice. Loyalty is a two way street the kingdom of God.
