Context makes a difference in conversation, but also when we read the Bible. That's why we created Bible Need To Know, a recurring feature that looks at the story behind the stories in the Bible. Use these devotionals as you
Ruth was born into a non-Jewish family and pagan nationality (Moab) that did not know or worship the one true God. However, she found favor with God when she chose to go with Naomi, her Jewish mother-in-law, and God blessed and chose her to become the matriarchal ancestor of our Lord Jesus. Now, whoever will accept Jesus is able to be grafted into the family of God.
