  1. Heart and Healing:
    Ruth 3:1-18

    1. If you are married, have been married, or might get married in the future, what role did or should, your parents play in the choice of your spouse?

    For me it was always very important that my parents approved of my future spouse, but they always made it clear that it was MY choice who I chose to marry. I did seek wisdom from them in my choice though, asking whether there were any warning signs they felt I may have missed, etc. Love can be blind at times and this was such a huge, life long decision that I didn’t want to make a mistake.

    2. If you have or were to lose your spouse, where would you or did you turn for help?

    If I should lose my spouse, I would turn to my family – both sides – for help.

    3. It seems that in today's world the government has replaced the “family redeemer” when it comes to providing for people. What do you see as the pros and cons of a government based system?

    The pros I see in the government being the ‘family redeemer’ is that there is a place to go if and when family is unable to help. The con to this is that it is a ‘system’ and ‘systems’ are often abused, making it difficult for those who truly need help to receive it.

    4. What is a lesson, a promise, a command, or a warning that you needed to hear from this story?

    Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in our lives and forget to be there for each other when it comes to family. I find this especially difficult living so far away from family. We are now closer to part of our family than we ever have been, so that makes this a little easier, but we need to make sure we are intentional in being there for our family.
