We start reading the book of Ruth today, one of my favorite stories.
Ruth: Sweet and Bitter Providence, sermon by John Piper
It’s a story that shows how “God moves in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform.” It’s a story for people who wonder where God is when there are no dreams or visions or prophets. It’s for people who wonder where God is when one tragedy after another attacks their faith. It’s a story for people who wonder whether a life of integrity in tough times is worth it. And it’s a story for people who can’t imagine that anything great could ever come of their ordinary lives of faith. It’s a refreshing and encouraging book, and I want you to be refreshed and encouraged this summer.

Reblogged this on My Delight and My Counsellors.
I love the story of Ruth and Naomi!! Thanks for sharing this!!
MS Larson: think about it; a humorous side to this story too. A man goes to sleep after a party: the woman, being smart lies down at his feet knowing the law. Wow He wakes up and is a married man. A good thing this Ruth was beautiful.
