Praise God that we finished the 3rd week of Transcribe The Word – Harvest Is Plenty Laborers Are Few
Ruth – Woman of Substance Bible Study and Journal
We studied Ruth, a beautiful girl from Moab, who was chosen by God to also become a laborer for him. Within ten years Ruth’s father in law, Elimelech and husband, Mahlon died in Moab after leaving Bethlehem from a prevailing famine. They left Ruth and her mother in law, Naomi alone and destitute not knowing which way to turn.
The other widowed wife and sister-in-law named Orpah chose to return to Moab, but a bitter Naomi chose to go back to Bethlehem to be among her people. Rather than staying in Moab, an idolatry society, Ruth chose to cling and follow behind her mother in law, who was also a believer in God.
