Read and S.O.A.P
Today's story ends as one of those happily-ever-after stories, but you might notice that
the author of Ruth does not make any spiritual applications. We the readers are left to connect
the dots as we reflect on the purpose of this story. So as this story comes to an end, try to
understand why this story was recorded in history and included in the Bible.
Read Ruth 4:13-22.
