The book of Ruth was written to provide a lovely example of the sovereignty and plan of God. In this beautiful account (Ruth1:16–17), He demonstrates how He will use a person (Ruth) who for all practical purposes is a foreigner and enemy of the Israelites. Her daughter-in-law Naomi demonstrates unconditional love (grace) when she refuses to leave her side. Ruth ends up playing a pivotal role in the storyline of the Bible because of her loyalty and desire for God, and thus she becomes the great-grandmother of King David!
Our Sunday School lesson this week is from the book of Ruth (1:16–17). It’s the story about Ruth’s love and compassion for Naomi. Ruth wasn’t even Naomi’s daughter but they shared mutual respect and love for each other. So much so, that Ruth took care of Naomi until her death. We are so grateful to the ladies that chose to be mentors and inspirational support to lift each other up! The lesson includes a bubble bath ice cream sundae, a journal page to complete about your favorite lady and shadow photo tips for an awesome Mother’s Day card!
