Ruth (CSSA Junior Stage 2 Lesson 16)
We have the wonderful story of a Gentile woman who showed great faith in the true God of Israel. Ruth clung unto Naomi and did not want her to go back to Israel without her. “Where you go, I will go … your people will be my people … and your God will be my God.” Ruth’s loving example and trust in God did not go unnoticed by Boaz. He took Ruth to be his wife and she became part of the family line that David and Christ would later be born into. The story of Ruth shows a wonderful example of a Gentile who joined the family of God because of her faith and trust in Yahweh.

Thanks to Kate B. for sharing these practical challenges.
Each week we hope to share a practical challenge that can be incorporated into the lesson or as homework.
Lesson 16 – Practical Challenge
Ruth worked hard to provide for Naomi. Think of something you can do this week to help someone you love.
Two dedicated Sunday School teachers have very useful Pinterest pages that link directly to the CSSA program.

And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.
