Day 3 - And she did eat, and was sufficed...

"And she did eat, and was sufficed, and left." Ruth 2:14

Whenever we are privileged to eat of the bread which Jesus gives, we are, like Ruth, satisfied with the full and sweet repast. When Jesus is the host no guest goes empty from the table. Our head is satisfied with the precious truth which Christ reveals; our heart is content with Jesus, as the altogether lovely object of affection; our hope is satisfied, for whom have we in heaven but Jesus? and our desire is satiated, for what can we wish for more than "to know Christ and to be found in him?" Jesus fills our conscience till it is at perfect peace; our judgment with persuasion of the certainty of his teachings; our memory with recollections of what he has done, and our imagination with the prospects of what he is yet to do. As Ruth was "sufficed, and left," so is it with us. ... we have had our hunger relieved at the feast of sacred love, and found that there was a redundance of spiritual meat remaining. --Charles Spurgeon

And she did eat and was sufficed and left. Amen.

That is the testimony of this day: Feeding on the Word and Faithfulness of God, being sufficed and leaving (food on my plate).

Amen and Amen!
