We will jump ahead to Ruth this week for our special Valentine lesson. The book of Ruth is easily one of the most familiar and popular in the Bible. It is a charming, short story and a great example of simple narrative with a happy ending. This historical account has heroines and a hero but no villain. There is friendship, romance and suspense. There is also tragedy, but it is overcome by courage, love, and loyalty. In this story, Naomi and Ruth are a beautiful example of loyalty, friendship and commitment – to God and to each other. We also see a love story develop involving Ruth and Boaz, her kinsman-redeemer.
