The Book of Ruth Devotion Series focuses on four important lessons to be learned from the story of Naomi and Ruth. Naomi, a widow whose sons had also died, travels back to Bethlehem. Her Daughter-in-law insists on returning with her and the decision changes their lives and ultimately all of the world.

“Honestly, God is strong and He can handle your bitterness. Because Naomi allowed herself to not only feel her bitterness toward God but to verbally state it, God was able to bring her through the pain. In my mind, if we can blame God for our pain (even though that blame is misplaced), then it is easy to see that God can heal our pain as well.”
“Well, things in life may really be hard right now but if you are willing to work hard, you will be rewarded with blessings. Most gleaners barely got enough each day to feed their family but because of her hard work, Ruth ended the day with more than she needed.”
“When Ruth asked for Boaz to put the corner of his garment over her, she was asking for his protection and provision. That is exactly what we are doing when we ask God to come into our hearts and guide our lives. We are asking for God to cover us in our weakness.”
“In the last post of the Book of Esther Series, we learned how important it was that Esther knew how to be patient. As we pick up the story, we learn about the dangers of pride. Haman is on his way to the palace. He is on top of the world but he has no idea what has happened during the night.”
I hope that you find this series on the Book of Ruth useful for your life. We will start a new series each month and will post them every Thursday.
