Peacemakers: Ruth 1:1-2:9

Ruth 1:1-2:9

Blessings are an act of peace. (1:6)

Things are far more better for me than for you, because the Lord himself has raised his fist against me.” – Ruth 1:13 

“Don’t call me Naomi, ” she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted[d] me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.” – Ruth 1:20-21 

(Not everything is as they appear.)

But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” – Ruth 1:16-17 (Loyalty)
