I was reading Ruth 3:3. After the death of Ruth’s husband, Naomi, her mother-in-law, asked Ruth to wash herself. The symbol of “washing” represented a cleansing of the past and a preparation for what God had in store for her in the future.

There are times in our lives when we need to wash ourselves and face our future with a clean slate, not letting the past hold us back.
