What’s the best way to learn about love? Dive in! Paul Miller, executive director of seeJesus, opens up the Book of Ruth to illustrate the meaning of hesed love, a steadfast kind of love and commitment that knows no exit strategy. Naomi lost all of her family except her daughters-in-law. She went back to Israel bitter of heart, even though Ruth has made this amazing pledge to her. It’s an entirely one-way love. Ruth goes the distance to care for Naomi, and that’s what we must do if we are to love like Christ does.
