Today’s readings covered a lot of ground. It spans from the story of Samson to the story of the birth of Samuel. Stuck in the middle of these two stories is the book of Ruth.
Ruth is an amazing story of grace and redemption. It’s the story of how Boaz became the “kinsman-redeemer” to Ruth & Naomi. In this story we see a connection to the New Testament because Jesus is our “kinsman-redeemer.” Like Boaz, Jesus took us in when we were without hope and offered grace and new life in His family.
