The Book of Ruth

May 4, 2014
Ruth 1:19-22 tells us the reaction of the town when Naomi returns and how Naomi responds to this reaction. Prepare for Sunday by reading this brief section in Ruth. What surprises you about the response Naomi gives to those who notice her return? Imagine Naomi sitting in your Sunday Bible Fellowship group and saying what she says in verses 20-21. How different is the way Naomi speaks about how she feels than the way we typically speak in church? What can we learn from Naomi’s authenticity? God loves and welcomes an authentic heart.
