Ruth: Faithful and True

Download (right click and choose save as)

The book of Ruth is one of the more tender stories in the Bible. First we, see this woman who is a foreigner, who is marginalized by those in Bethlehem, and who even describes herself as not even having the standing of a servant. But we see her as faithful to one who had no means of providing. Willing to trust the word of her mother-in-law, and courageously placing herself under the care of a man who was a stranger to her. God rewards the faithfulness of this marginalized foreigner and welcomes her into his family. Something for us to consider.
