Continuing with the daily Jesus7days365 YouTube channel reading, I read the Book of Ruth. It is one of only two books in the Bible named after a woman. Here are the videos of the reading with some brief commentaries (you have to love that first picture – I have to start doing these when I’ve woken up, showered, and combed my hair):
This book is yet another wonderful example of how God works in everyday lives for His glory. In their desperate pain and fear, widows Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi, trust in God to take care of them. Then, events are set in motion that result in not only a happy ending for Ruth and Naomi, but for all of mankind.
Ruth finds a new husband and gives birth to King David’s grandfather.
If Ruth doesn’t become a widow and doesn’t choose to remain at her mother-in-law’s side? No King David… and most importantly, no birth of Jesus.
