Here's this week's short Bible study blog entry for i.ucc:

According to this week’s Bible reading from Ruth 3:1-5; 4:13-17, here’s how Ruth family functioned:
  • Find a relative of your dead husband.
  • Follow your mother-in-law’s instructions for what to do to seek security for you and for her.
  • Attempt to seduce him so that he will marry you.
  • (Not in the reading –but part of the story: Know that he will be a just person who will honor you and who will follow the rules set up by the system.)
  • Get married.
  • Have a baby.
  • Give the baby to your mother-in-law to care for.
  • Let the baby be the grandfather of David.
What can you add to the story? What can you learn?
