Let's continue an in-depth study in the book of Ruth. We’ll see how uncommon it was in the Old Testament for foreigners to embrace the one true God.
Imagine moving to another country. You don’t know the language. You don’t know the customs and traditions. You’re leaving all that’s familiar behind.
When life has dealt blow after difficult blow, sometimes we wonder if God has deserted us. That’s where we find the Old Testament character, Naomi, when we pick up our study in the book of Ruth.
When the storms of life rage around you, and there’s no end in sight, how do you hold on to hope? Enjoy Naomi's plight portrayed in a special dramatization.
When life doesn’t turn out the way we expect, we can grow discouraged and disillusioned, and sometimes, there’s no relief or hope in sight.
When we read a familiar passage of Scripture, sometimes we miss important details because we’ve heard it so many times before. You’re invited to spend time with us, as we re-engage in the book of Ruth.
The Bible contains a variety of literary devices such as poetry, history and personal letters. And we can sometimes misinterpret what we’re reading, if we don’t pay careful attention to the context.
It’s not easy leaving the familiar, and stepping into the unknown! Perhaps you’ve been called to step out in faith in your own life.
When you’re going through a difficult season, and you can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel, it’s tempting to retreat, and give in to despair.
The work that we do, and money we earn, serves a purpose in the kingdom of God. When God has given generously to us, it’s so we can be generous with others.
Do you know a family that’s struggling right now? So many have lost jobs in recent months. Perhaps you know someone who could use a helping hand. Let's take a practical look at giving.
When you’re in the thick of the struggle, it’s not easy to anticipate a positive outcome. But in retrospect, often we can see where God took a seemingly bad situation, and turned it into something good.
The service industry is often a thankless job. Whether you’re waiting in line at McDonald’s, or you’re calling a customer service line to report an issue, how you treat those who provide services for you reveals character.
