LESSON 7 Living as God’s people Ruth 1, 2
Ruth has many reasons not to faithfully follow God, the Great King. She does not come from Israel. The Israelite husband she married has died. However, Ruth decides to be faithful. Her faithfulness is rewarded with God’s lovingkindness, as she finds a new husband and a new family. The story of Ruth, Boaz and Naomi gives us a picture of the faithful living that matches the lovingkindness of the Great King.
