Ruth - 1 - Desolation to Restoration
The story of Ruth is a bright spot in a very dark time for the nation of Israel. The story itself is an example of God's providential care for his people in the midst of their desolation. The days of Ruth were the days of the Judges, a time marked by evil and opression, a time when everyone did what was right in their own eyes. But the story of Ruth offers a glimmer of hope, a reminder that God is working to bring his people to restoration and unity through his servant King David and ultimately our Saviour King Jesus! God has not abandonded you, though he may seem absent he is still at work restoring you!
