Ruth – Week 2, Saturday

Saturday, October 1

Read Ruth 1

In the time of Ruth, widows had little to no options.  As women, they had no opportunity to work and so their survival depended on the support of others.  Instead of holding onto her daughters-in-law as support, Naomi encouraged them to leave her and return to their homes.  Describe a time when you wrestled through a choice between your own selfishness and the long-term interest of someone you love. How did you see God at work in this decision?
