Boaz said to Ruth, "May the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully for what you have done." ~ Ruth 2:12 (NLT)

Paul wrote: I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a deacon in the church in Cenchrea. Welcome her in the Lord as one who is worthy of honor among God’s people. Help her in whatever she needs, for she has been helpful to many, and especially to me. ~ Romans 16:1-2 (NLT)

Those who honor the Lord with their lives should be honored, too.
Lord, thank you for the models of faith -- especially the women whom we too often overlook. Help us to become like them and to stop giving our attention to the people who look like stars to the rest of society. I'm going to honor those whom you honor. Amen.
