What in the world is God doing? Our pain and suffering may often be as mysterious as God himself. Tucked away in one of the most tragic eras of the Old Testament (the time of the Judges) is the jewel we call “Ruth,” a story of redemption. One woman’s faithfulness to her mother-in-law will bring salvation to, not only a single family, but to the whole nation and eventually to the entire world. God’s ways of redemption are as mysterious as human suffering, as he constantly works in ways beyond our comprehension.
