“Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, ‘Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain'” (Ruth 2:2). Great example here. No self-pity. Ruth wants to do her part to put food on the table. When you don’t know what else to do, trust God and start gleaning!

If you want to go to heaven, the first step is to stop trying to earn your way there. You have to stop trying and start trusting in Jesus.
