Sermon Notes:

Ruth is about God’s goodness in the ordinary, the mundane, the hard, and the “normal.” Nothing in the book of Ruth is miraculous; no dreams, no visions, no miracles. But the same all powerful God who rescued the entire nation of Israel by parting the Red Sea for Moses is the same gracious God who gives a single widow a home, a family, and a community. God’s bigger story of redemption is unfolding for Ruth and for us. We see God’s providential hand both in Ruth’s challenges and in our own hard things, our own ordinary, mundane circumstances. We have learned so far in the book of Ruth that God is good. God is kind, and God is actively listening to His people. This week we see how “character” gets notice by three main people in the story: Naomi, Boaz & Ruth.
