Timeline of Truth: Naomi Seeks a Better Future for Her Daughters-in-Law (Ruth 1:8-18)

Sunday, September 22nd, 2019

Naomi displays her loving care for her daughters-in-law, even in the aftermath of terrible circumstances and at the cost of her own personal provision and her only remaining loving relationships. She attempts to send Orpah and Ruth back to their own families. Orpah heads for home. Ruth selflessly commits herself to Naomi. God uses Ruth in profound ways God wants us to make significant, permanent, often costly life choices for Him.

Timeline of Truth:  The Rise of Jephthah, the Negotiating Judge (Judges 10:6-11:29)
Once again Israel rejects God, and God turns the nation over to a very oppressive enemy. Israel confesses their sin, but God says “No.” They put repentant words to their actions. God relents and allows for the raising up of another delivering warrior, Jephthah. Jephthah had been rejected because of his past, which he had no control over, and now is pursued by Israel to lead their army to war against the oppressors. God can use someone that others rejected? How do we approach others that do not meet our affirmation?
