The Journey Through Ruth
The Wisdom Journey through Ruth.
In the midst of the dark days of the Judges, we find a beautiful story of love and faith and faithfulness recounted in the little book of Ruth. When Israel as a nation had turned away from the Lord, a man named Boaz remained faithful to God and His Word. When the pagan nations surrounding Israel were steeped in idolatry and far from the truth, God’s grace reached out to a Moabite woman named Ruth. In His providence God brought these two people together. And through them, God not only gave His people examples of godly character but also illustrated the concept of the kinsman-redeemer, which would be fulfilled spiritually in the Messiah who would come from their direct line of descendants.
