Romantic Mercy Part 1: Un-evangelism
Scripture: Ruth 1:1–1:22
We meet Naomi and her family. In a culture of disobedience, they pick up and leave God’s promised land and go to Moab. They get two Moabite wives for their sons—only to have all the men in the family die. In her suffering, Naomi takes her eyes off of the hope in God and focuses on her sorrow, her suffering— herself. In spite of the obstacles Naomi causes for Ruth, God still pursues Ruth and gives her faith.
