Join Veteran SGT Steve McFarland as he share another great "Healing Through Faith!" evening with Warriors for Life (WFL) Virtual Group Support this coming Tuesday night.
Tuesday's Topic: "Adventures In Ruth - Going Back Home!"
There may be "no place like home", but what if "home" isn't HOME any more? Naomi had left Bethlehem many years before, and if she went back, would she be welcome there? What would they think of the two Moabite girls she had in tow? Was this a mistake?
When we left Naomi, Ruth and Orpah last time, all three women had lost their husbands, so they were widows. Naomi was a foreigner, so she was left with no way of supporting herself, and even though Ruth and Orpah were “natives“, they weren’t going to find husbands on their own. For a woman, or three women, to be left alone in the world without a man or an extended family in those days meant that one of three things would very shortly happen: The woman would find a man to marry, she would become a prostitute, or she would starve. Thus Naomi, Orpah and Ruth were in very deep trouble. What will they do?
There was only one solution, for Naomi to go back home to Bethlehem, and for Orpah and Ruth to go back home to their families, in hopes that they could find another husband.
It wasn’t going to be an easy journey, because no matter which route they took, it was going to be at least seventy-five miles long. Moab was separated from Israel by the Salt Sea, the Jordan River, and a range of mountains, so they were going to encounter rivers to ford and mountains to cross. Unless they had pack-animals to carry extra goods, such as a tent, they were going back with little-more than the clothes on their backs. Were the routes even safe-enough for three women to travel alone? There were SO many unknowns…
