It’s the story of a family life which just fell apart. Elimilech and Naomi started out their life together as a young Jewish family full of joy and praise for God. Life was pleasant and full of hope. But soon they had two sons who weren’t exactly the picture of health…and then a famine came to their land…and then things got worse….
Ruth is a story of hopelessness turned into hope, and bitterness turned to sweet peace. It’s a story of God stretching out His arms to catch up seemingly insignificant people into His amazing plan for all creation.
