Ruth: Why You Should Always Carry an Umbrella
Mar 18, 2018 - Rev Andrew Forrest
If you ask most people how they’re doing, they’ll answer in the small things:
“It’s been busy at work”
“The kids have been sick”
“Trying to get the house painted to put it on the market.”
We think and evaluate the day-to-day events of our lives. What we miss, though, is the larger perspective.
It’s like those photo riddles involving extreme close-ups of everyday objects—you need to zoom out to understand what they are.
The Book of Ruth—that tiny, beautiful little book—is an extreme close-up of one Israelite family. But when you zoom out…WOW.
This is why you should always carry an umbrella.
