Naomi - Developer
People who are especially talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from these improvements.
Naomi enters history married with two children and a husband. But there was a famine in Bethlehem the “House of Bread." Naomi’s husband decided to leave Bethlehem and travel to Moab in order to provide for his family. But the move proved tragic because there was a greater famine waiting for this family.
Naomi’s husband died and then her two son’s died leaving their wives widowed.
Naomi was left destitute with two daughters in law.
When Naomi learned that Bethlehem no longer had a famine she decided to return. Ruth, her daughter in law, was determined to go with her. Naomi obviously was a wonderful mother-in-law. Despite the fact that Ruth would be living in poverty and in a land that considered her a foreigner she wanted to stay with Naomi.
Although Naomi felt abandoned by God she fought her way back and led Ruth into the will of God for her life. Naomi used her talent of Developer to bring her out of a deep depression. By helping to develop another person Naomi learns that her life is in God's hands!
Every one should instinctively know that when things fall apart it’s the time to hold on.
