Bible commentary

Discussion for Ruth 1

  • A disciple
    The Story of Ruth is one of the sweetest and most touching stories in the Bible. When we read it, and picture the kind of world that was in their little community; the goodness and wholesome simplicity is like a glimpse into the time to come when Jesus and His Saints are ruling the world. Though it so warms my heart on the one hand it makes me so sad for how it is today among so-called Christians.

    Verse 14: Ruth showed loyalty by sticking with her mother-in-law through good times and bad times. We do well to imitate her loyalty.

    This chapter is about decision. Ruth chose to stay with Naomi and to worship her God.
  • Irene123
    There is another 'back' story to "Ruth'. Had Elimelech stayed for 10 yrs. in Bethlehem, they would have been alright. But, God was moving the 'pieces' of Jesus birth into place. Everything that happens, God is there. God knows what each of us will do in a certain situation - and His will will be done. Nor can we say what God's plan 'b' would have been; with God - there is no 'plan B'. 'A' works!!
  • Barbara Pierce
    Ruth showed the agape love that we should have! Even in sorrow she kept the love and acted upon it. She loved Naomi and was willing to give her life to go with her.
