The Book of Ruth

The book of Ruth is one of the shortest books in the Bible. It is only 4 chapters, but it is essential to the lessons we learn through scripture. In Ruth man-made prejudice and rules are broken down and defied in the relationship and love between Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi. They come from different religions, and there has been much hatred between their two civilizations. God doesn’t love and accept based on age, gender, sex, race, or religion. Anyone can come to God, we are not defined by man-made expectations and rules. Let us remember that the difference between what God accepts and what man accepts can be much different. Even some of the rules churches make as far as who’s welcome should be questioned if they are not welcome to ALL. Are we seeing the world through man’s eyes or God’s? Ask this often.
