What if you were asked to name the most important quality in a person of faith? What would you say? Honesty? Purity? Compassion? Scripture actually has an answer to this question. In honor of the Jewish holiday Shavuot, the Festival of Weeks, better known to Christian by its Greek name, Pentecost, we’ll learn about the one quality that can take our faith to the next level. The biblical figure Ruth demonstrated this quality when she followed her mother-in-law Naomi back to Israel and joined the Jewish people. So did the nation of Israel when they accepted God’s Torah unconditionally at the foot of Mt. Sinai. In today’s podcast, host Yael Eckstein will explain how both these biblical stories connect to the holiday of Shavuot, which is celebrated this week, and why the quality of unconditional commitment — or commitedness — to God and His Word matters the most.
