Great things sometimes come in small packages. Such is the case with the little book of Ruth.
The time spent in the book of Ruth may prove to be one of the greatest investments of your life. It is God’s love story to humanity. The setting for the book of Ruth is “in the days when the judges ruled.”
“Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons” (Ruth 1:1).
During this period, God intended the nation of Israel to function as a Theocracy. God was to be their King and was to govern them through His Law and through various “Judges” who He raised up to deliver Israel from the consequences of her rebellion against God’s Law. It is apparent that these people did not want a heavenly King, but a king “like other nations.” It the midst of all this historic drama, we find God’s portrayal of His love and redemption in the types found in Boaz, Naomi, and Ruth. It is a love story of hope in that what God promises He fulfills.
