Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Passage: Ruth 3

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Living the Story: Ruth

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: discipleship, influence, legacy, ministry, opportunity

Sometimes the gift of God comes in the form of an unexpected, maybe even unusual, opportunity. In Ruth 3, both Naomi and Boaz recognize such opportunities. Ruth was simply left in the middle of an elaborate scheme as Naomi elected to take a chance on Boaz, and as Boaz eventually took a chance on Ruth. Opportunities to invest in the lives of others come around all the time, and some of those occasions are chances to make a life-changing difference. But if we don’t align our thinking toward this purpose, and allow ourselves to be interrupted, we may never realize that God’s gift of influence and legacy has crossed our path.
