I was led to The Book of Ruth by the comforting hand of the Holy Spirit during a time of extreme turmoil in my life. Understanding the true meaning of the book helped me make one of the most important choices I have ever made. The Book of Ruth is known for the extraordinary meeting of Ruth and Boaz. There are other aspects of it like misfortune, humility, industry, loving kindness and friendship that are also highlighted. However, the main message behind this book in the Bible is often overlooked. There are only two books named after women in the Bible: “The Book of Ruth” is one of them.
Ruth Dickson’s illustrated Christian story books are written to encourage deeper understanding of the gospel message. It also helps children learn Christian virtues like love, kindness, compassion, honesty, tolerance and patience amongst many others. Listening to children read provides quality time for all: children, teachers, parents and carers.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles..."
(2 Cor. 1:3,4)
When you think about Humility what do you see? You may think about the way a person carries themselves, their lifestyle, the car they drive or even where they live.
The words piety, frugality or even hardship may come to mind. However, it goes way beyond this as you will discover by reading this book.
