The book of Ruth shows us God’s covenantal love and faithfulness in redeeming his people. In this first section of chapter one, it is a very dark time in Israel’s history and in the life of Naomi. Naomi is living in a godless foreign land, and has lost her husband and her two sons. As the book of Ruth unfolds, we will see that there is hope even in the midst of the darkest days. God has a plan, and he is always with us. From our Sunday service at Grace Bible Church of Bend.
