Over the next four weeks, we will be taking a look at some life lessons to be learned from the Book of Ruth. There are lessons in this book that we can apply to our lives that will bring us closer to God. The first lessons we will look at is that in life there will be unexpected grief in our lives and that people who truly love us will be loyal during our hard times.
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. The king couldn’t sleep and much like us, he reached for a book to read. He picked what was surely to be boring but he was wrong. While reading the book that had all of the past events of the kingdom recorded, he found something very interesting.
