Discussion for Ruth 1

  • 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.
