Ruth: Week 3

The amazing story of God’s faithfulness to Israel is told in the book of Ruth via the lives of three ordinary people: Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. These three people find themselves at times in both economic hardship and prosperity, and through it all we see the hand of God at work. God’s faithfulness to them creates a new family out of nothing and their faithfulness to God brings blessing and hope for the future.

Read the story of Ruth every week. May God reveal his heart to you in new and fresh ways as you meet together.
As you read and study together, make sure to work hard at hearing from everyone that has gathered together. Pray for one another and be accountable to applying the word of God to your lives.

Questions for this week:

  1. In Ruth 2:19-20, there is a shift in Naomi’s attitude from dismay to hope when she learns of God’s providential provision through Ruth’s interaction with Boaz. What does this tell you about the type of God we have?
  2. Based on Naomi’s joyful response what is your take on how we should respond when the Lord blesses us?
  3. What are some situations in your life where you can be more thankful for your blessings?
  4. How are you going to carry that attitude to your Thanksgiving celebration this week?
