It wasn’t always harvest. Remember Ruth 1:1 – “There was a famine in the land.” In today’s world – for some, there is harvest. For others, there is famine. At the time of the harvest, we give thanks to God and we share with people in need. Do not forget the Lord (Ruth 2:4,12) – and don’t forget other people. The harvest is not to be kept to ourselves. It’s to be shared with others.  “She ate and was satisfied and had some left over” (Ruth 2:14). We must not look after ourselves. We must look after people in need. They are waiting for us to share.
