The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, January 6. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.
God’s Sovereignty in the Book of Ruth
Ask your child:
- How was Ruth obedient in hard times? Ruth worked hard and pursued solutions to problems.
- How did God resolve Ruth and Naomi’s problems? How is this relevant to us? God provided a redeemer to rescue them. God provided a Redeemer (Jesus) for us.
Emphasize this principle: God causes all things to work for the good of those that love Him. Therefore, we should trust and obey.
- Trust God in all circumstances.
- Seek to please God in the midst of trials.
Prepare for next week: Review Exodus-Ruth
Memorize for Jan 6-Jan 27: “…let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25*
