Mercy, Blessings and Character

From Series: Lessons For Life, Volume 3

Ruth 2:1-23  (ID: 0106)

If God is sovereign over everything, do our decisions still matter? Under the guidance of God’s providential care, Ruth actively sought provision for herself and her mother-in-law Naomi. While she relied on God, she practiced common sense, thought carefully, and acted sensibly. Alistair Begg notes that Ruth’s story illustrates the tension between God’s providence and man’s actions. Like Ruth, when we recognize the provision of God, we should respond in wonder at His unfolding goodness.


Ruth Meets Boaz

1Now Naomi had a relative of her husband's, a worthy man of the clan of Elimelech, whose name was Boaz.
