Ruth may have been a short book … but what a treasure trove of truth!
I love that the story began with Ruth’s choice to follow GOD, that is, after all, where all our stories really begin One Choice. It is wonderful that GOD had planned for her life all those centuries before with the provision of the Guardian Redeemer (Leviticus 25:25-28). That He plans for us and has become our strong and protective Guardian Redeemer. I love that her story will never end. Not only was there no recorded death for her (even though she did die) but she gained a place in Jesus’ lineage Internal Dialog and Immeasurable Inheritance.
Where to next? … I’m heading off to the New Testament and the first book, Matthew.
