     | 678 views

    One thing the Book of Ruth tells us is death of Fatherhood and rise of Motherhood. All the men died – all the women lived. In today's society, fatherhood is on the decline. Elimelech wanted the best for his family. But some things went wrong. He resembles many fathers today.

    Elimelech (meaning "God is my king") marries Naomi (meaning "sweet one"). A marriage made in heaven. They have 2 kids – Mahlon ("sickly") & Chilion (“wasting away"). Why were 2 sickly kids born to such great couple? Why famine? Marriage is more than kissing...

    What kind of characteristics did Ruth have that caused Boaz to be so amazed? Was he just a silly man captivated by a woman’s beauty? Was this the first woman he had fallen in love with? I do not think so. To understand what is happening here, let us do a series on romantic relationships,

  • Walking In The Wilderness Series

     | 4,312 views

    In a time of famine, Elimelech and his family run from God to the land of God’s enemies, and pay a steep price as they do what seems right in God’s eyes. How will we respond in the time of our own “famines?”

Heslop writes, “The book of Ruth consists of less than 100 verses, and yet it would be impossible to exhaust ...read more
