October 23 - Deuteronomy 24-25

Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld: Ruth in Boaz's ... 
God's mercy for the poor and disadvantaged as expressed in this section of Deuteronomy's Law is good to read on the day of St. James of Jerusalem.  But my mind wandered to how God was preparing in advance for the good works done in Ruth's day.  Boaz had this Law guiding his farming, therefore Ruth and Naomi did not starve, therefore Boaz not only became Ruth's kinsman-redeemer, but this union also eventually led to the birth of David - and far more importantly, the birth of the Son of David, the Christ, the Son of the living God, who became poor for our sakes that we might become rich.


  1. Looks like you may be reading a treasury of daily prayer...
    That is part of my daily prayer life as well... cool

    I'd be interested in hearing what you have to say about my blog

  2. Billy, yes - other than a sprinkling of random thoughts and Sunday morning sermons, these posts are based on TDP. Glad to be found by you and I'll peruse your blog at some point soon.
