I Am Beautiful, I Am Sublime

Meaning of Sublime: [Merriam Webster]

Lofty, grand, or exalted in thought, expression, or manner. Of outstanding spiritual, intellectual, or moral worth. Tending to inspire awe usually because of elevated quality (as of beauty, nobility or grandeur) or transcendent excellence

Ruth, the Woman Who Rose from Obscurity to Riches [Biblegateway.com/resources/all-women-bible/Ruth]

Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodges, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

If the meaning of sublime is “exalted in thought”, I can think of no better example than Ruth. With unselfish motives, she is a great example of outstanding spiritual , intellectual and moral worth. Here she was recently widowed and on her way to a strange land because she was so impacted by Naomi’s when Naomi asked her to go back because she had nothing to offer her she pleaded with her saying,

Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodges, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.

This journey would take her from poverty and obscurity to riches and legacy.

She had faith and forethought to understand that there could be something better waiting for her on the other side and she was courageous enough to go to a land that she knew absolutely nothing about, with no security whatsoever. Her mother-in-law Naomi was not guaranteed anything either, because even she had lost her two sons. Ruth was a loyal person of great moral worth. She followed Naomi’s instructions in dealing with Boaz and found herself a wonderful husband but also made her way into the lineage of Jesus Christ. The name Ruth is a Hebrew name which means companion, friend, vision of beauty.

Her name is a contraction of ruth, which may either be the word for “the act of seeing,” “sight” and hence, as in English, objectively “a sight”, “something worth seeing”—or the word for “friendship” or a “female friend,”, like red in Reuel, “friend of God.”

Father, I thank you for giving he outstanding spiritual, intellectual and moral worth as Ruth demonstrated in her life. The Word says that you are the same yesterday, today and forever, so I thank you in advance for intervening in my life so spectacularly as you did in Ruth’s. Before she even left her homeland to set out on her journey you had already provided Boaz. Her kinsmen redeemer. I thank you for the kinsmen redeemer that I have in Jesus Christ. I thank you for granting my family a natural and spiritual legacy which reflects the covenant you have established in my life through the Blood of Jesus.
