 Questions to think through and pray through with your small group and family
Taken from the back of The Story book “Discussion Questions”

  1. What does Ruth’s story reveal about the love of God?
  2. What does Ruth’s story reveal about how God views all people groups? What does that mean for you?
  3. Both Ruth and Naomi suffered tremendous loss. Why does a good and gracious God allow tragedy to come upon those who love him?
  4. When difficult times come, what causes you to continue to hope in God?
  5. Ruth left her home to follow Naomi and to follow God. How is God asking you to follow Him?
  6. In what way do Ruth’s actions and responses challenge you? Encourage you?
  7. What steps can you take to become a more selfless, loving person?
