Running on Empty
Scripture: Ruth 1:1–4:22
This Mother's Day, Pastor Jake brought a word of hope and encouragement from God's Word. No mother is a stranger to prolonged pain, disappointment, disillusionment. Every mother (and believer, for that matter) can benefit from the encouragement found in the Scriptures. If you ever questioned the sovereignty or the goodness of God, learn from the story of Naomi. At the beginning of the book of Ruth, Naomi was an empty, bitter, lonely woman. After Ruth seeks refuge for herself and Naomi under the wings of a redeemer, God provides for and protects Naomi through the birth of the chosen son.
