The book of Ruth is not a story about me or you. In fact, it is not even a story about Ruth, even though she is a main character. Instead, it is a story about God's covenant faithfulness.
The story of Ruth seems to start out in sadness as we find Naomi and Ruth suffering from poverty and the loss of the men in their family. However, as we will learn through this lesson, God displayed His goodness and providence through Ruth, and through Ruth provided a channel in the geneaology leading up to Jesus, our ultimate redeemer.
