Replying to @regrivett
This is not a romance. This is a redemption story. This is not an ancient Romeo and Juliet story. This is Christ going to the cross before Jesus took on flesh.

The more I read the book of Ruth, the more convinced I am that we have been taught and have taught on this book poorly.

Discipline is backing up your ambition with your actions. Don't just dream it. Discipline it.

As teachers and preachers, we have failed.

Going to try this feature. Hopefully it will keep things spoiler free for a while.

I think we make a mistake when we read Biblical events as happening one right after the other. Events take time. Life happens between the lines. Not everyday was miracle after miracle. That doesn’t mean God isn’t present, only that He is present in β€œnormal”ness.

With so much hate and violence and unbridled foolishness in our world, I’m still amazed that most of us don’t stay in bed all day. If only that was a real answer to our problems.

Rosa Parks was not protesting the bus. Gandhi was not protesting the food. The colonists were not protesting tea. Players are not protesting the flag or the anthem. They are protesting injustice.

We read the Bible because it is the best God-given window through which we get a clear view of Jesusβ€”who is God’s ultimate self-disclosure. The Bible is not a painting to be looked at, but a window to be looked through, and through that window we see Jesus. ~

Has anyone else ever noticed that Boaz calls Ruth β€œmy daughter” not β€œsweetheart/lover/bride/beloved” or something equally romantic...? Does that change how the story is to be understood?

Not every theological insight you have is right. Be humble.

Reading books about basketball doesn’t improve your jumper. Shooting does. Reading books on running or weight-lifting will not get you in better shape. Exercising does. Reading alone will not grow your faith. Walking in faith does. Your faith is a muscle that needs use to grow.

There is lot of stuff you and I get wrong about the Bible. Nobody wants to be wrong about it but it's inevitable. Keep studying and learning anyway. It takes a long time and you have your whole life.
