It was a time not unlike our own. When the judges ruled, the nation of Israel indulged in radical individualism, frequent wars, idol worship, and more.
In the Book of Ruth, Naomi—her family of four having fled a famine only to suffer devastating losses—returns home, grieving and accompanied by Ruth, her Moabite daughter-in-law. Naomi thought she had nothing left, but God surprised her with His faithfulness in the midst of her crisis of faith. He brought joy from grief, fullness from emptiness, and a birth that continued the line through which Christ, the Son of God, would be born generations later.

In today’s world of pain and confusion, wars and displaced people, a pandemic and its isolation, and so much more, people are looking for home in a world of constant change.
