A note that sounds all the way through the Bible is the conviction that God is faithful. God will be with you, in good times and bad, and will never let you down. That kind of commitment can be reflected also in the way we live our lives. At a very tough moment Ruth said to her mother-in-law Naomi: “Where you go, I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried.” With God’s help we too can become utterly dependable people.
