This watercolor painting tells Ruth’s story, a story of faithfulness, love, and redemption, through four major turning points of her life. Beginning where the Old Testament book begins, this image shows Ruth accompanying her mother-in-law, Naomi, back to the land of Judah after their husbands had died in Moab. To provide food for Naomi and herself, Ruth gleaned the leftover grain from Boaz’s field and found favor with him. Following her mother-in-law’s advice, Ruth let Boaz know of her need to be provided for by lying at his feet on his threshing floor. Boaz then took Ruth to be his wife. Their child, Obed, was the grandfather of David. In His sovereign plan, God displayed His kindness to Ruth, even involving her in the lineage of the future Messiah.
Ruth’s story is found in the Old Testament in the book of Ruth.
I hope that this image will be a reminder to you of the truth of God’s Word, His call for personal faithfulness, and His sovereignly ordered direction and plan for each person He creates.Buy this item
