READ Ruth Ch. 2: 14- 23
Thinking back, of Israel's history, how did God prepare them to bless other nations (other people)? See: Gen. 12:2 , 18:18-19, Deut. 10: 18-19
What can we gather was Boaz's perspective about God's people? (LEADER: GOD is a refuge, a protector of them...)
What did Ruth learn from Boaz about the God of Isreal?
Naomi declares: That Boaz be blessed of the Lord, whose kindness has been shown to us. Whose kindness is she referring to, Boaz or the Lord? Discuss. (LEADER: Ultimately it both)
What is God's design for the lost, broken, fatherless, widow? How do God's people fit into that plan? How does this apply to YOU?
We all know hurting people - maybe that's you today. The church should be the safest place for the hurting and broken! Are we? How? Reflect and discuss.
How is being a "refuge" displayed in the following 3 areas: Invite, Welcome, and Make Room? (Leader: Those were Pastor Robeys 3 application points).
