Morning Outline:

August 18 AM

Text: Ruth 2:8-23
Date: August 18 AM
Location: Almyra FBC

How much is an ephah? About a tenth of a cor, silly. (Actually, about 5 gallons, roughly.)

About $2.70 worth of barley
Application Action: Spend $2.70 doing something for someone who can never repay you.

What can we do with 2.70? How long can we live? What could you buy?

Not a gallon of milk. Or gas.

Not even a cheeseburger meal from McDonald's.

This morning, we're going to look at 2.70 and see that even a small amount matters.

Now, to get into that, we need to take a look at our text this morning, Ruth 2:8-23 and start from that point.


Let's consider the story...

work through Ruth and her diligence


Address God at the back of the story  (Consider citing C.S. Lewis: "He seems to be at the back of all the stories, from the Horse and His Boy)


Address Naomi's enthusiasm for working in Boaz's field


Sideways glance: Is it better to begin romance on character or appearance?



Actions: $2.70 for Bibles, food for the hungry, children's school supplies; medicine; 

Consider this: The power of God is enough whatever you have...Ruth had $2.70 and look at what she became. What will happen with yours?
