Loss, Love And Legacy
There are only two books of the Bible named after women, Esther and Ruth. Ruth is a short, four chapter narrative that wraps together the human experience of loss, love and legacy with the divine hope and sovereignty of a redeeming God. It takes place during the book of Judges when Israel was in a dark place far from God (Judges 17:6; 21:25). Ruth provides a sparkle of light when the provision of the kinsman-redeemer is introduced (Christ is our Kinsman-Redeemer). Ruth has been called “the Cinderella of the Bible” because it is the story of a Moabite woman who forsakes her pagan heritage in order to cling to the God and people of Israel. God rewards her by giving her a new husband (Boaz), a son (Obed), and an honored position in the lineage of David (she is his great-grandmother) and most of all Christ.
KEY VERSE: “…For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God.” Ruth 1:16b
