The book of Ruth begins with a famine and ends with a baby in order to demonstrate how God reorders what was disorderly in the lives of ordinary people. Their trials and tears and trauma turn out for the good of all mankind. The worst things happened, but the best things were happening behind the scenes in the plan of God. This beautiful story illustrates how God preserves His people through dark times, tragic situations, apostasy, and rebellion through a “Kinsman Redeemer”.
