Scripture reference: Ruth 1:1-6

There is a connection between obedience and commitment to authority. In the book of Ruth we are introduced to a woman by the name of Ruth. Ruth displayed unwavering commitment to her mother-in-law Naomi. Naomi lost her husband and lost her two sons later on. She decided to return to her people because there was nothing more left for her in the land of Moab. (Ruth 1:1-6). She told both her daughter-in-laws Ruth and Orpah to go back to their respective people because she had nothing to offer them.

Ruth chose to remain with her mother-in law Naomi instead. Ruth was so committed that she refused to be changed by conditions. The death of her husband did not change the relationship between her and Naomi. There are people who fail to commit to their spiritual authority. They fail to understand that God works in relationships thus He does not honour those who do not commit and obey. Honor your spiritual authority.
