Show Notes

I had an interesting experience...I'll have to share the audio with you soon!! I interviewed a few people to see if they could tell me anything about Ruth in the Bible. Yep. A tiny book slipped in-between Judges and 1 Samuel. I was having a hard time locating it last night--I refused to look in the index of my Bible (I was using my mother's Bible as I normally go the digital route, and was sentimental. Believe it or not, I opened it up and there was a Christmas card I had tucked in it earlier in the year, after she had passed. What a welcome gift.) Apparently Ruth is a figure few are aware of! Which again why we're talking about her! Most people can tell you about Adam and Eve, King David, and the prayer of Jabez, but beyond that the patriarchs of old seem to fade into the forgotten recesses of our past Sunday School classes...that is if you were in church as a child. No condemnation...just a realization really how little we all know about an important figure in the line of Christ. So after I completed the teaching on the Parable of the 10 Virgins in Matthew 25, I asked the Lord where to go from here and He said Ruth. She must've been an incredible lady for the Lord to include her in his earthly family tree! Tell me, how does little Tommy end up carrying the facial likeness of great uncle Sam on his mother's side? That to me is a crazy mystery! I have a, let's see, my father's mother's father, yes, my great grandfather...did I get that right? Well I saw his picture one time when I was talking with my grandmother and he looked just like one of my brothers. Or rather, my brother looks like him lol. Is it any wonder that Jesus might've had some of the looks of someone down the line? It would be an interesting thought...maybe he had David's "ruddy" looks. Someday we'll all know...isn't that a wonderful thought! God bless you and talk to you next week! P.S. This is my 13th episode...and I completed it on Monday the 13th of December...no I'm not superstitious lol but I thought it was pretty funny as I didn't see that until I edited the audio today!
