Sunday School Lesson   8 May  2022
By: Noppawan Chupan and Team
Ruth, the woman that is honest and sincere.  
 Ruth and Orpah, the widows  Ruth 1: 3-5
Now Elimelek, Naomi’s husband, died, and she was left with her two sons. They married Moabite women, 
one named Orpah and the other Ruth. After they had lived there about ten years, both Mahlon and Kilion also died, 
and Naomi was left without her two sons and her husband.
Ruth`s mother in law gives her a chance   Ruth 1:9
May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband.”Then she kissed them goodbye and they wept aloud
Mother in law more concerned for others than herself   Ruth 1: 11-12
But Naomi said, “Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Am I going to have any more sons, 
who could become your husbands? Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. 
Even if I thought there was still hope for me—even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons—
Where mother in law goes, the daughter will follow too  Ruth 1:16
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, 
and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.
1. God`s laws are good. Deuteronomy 24:19
When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, 
so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
2. To feed the poor and to teach the rich.  Ruth 2:2
 And Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain behind anyone in whose eyes I find favor.
3. God`s people bless the beauty  Ruth 2:4
Just then Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted the harvesters, “The Lord be with you!” “The Lord bless you!” they answered.
4. God`s people can tolerate hardships.  Ruth 2:5
Boaz asked the overseer of his harvesters, “Who does that young woman belong to?”
5. God`s people has kindness and mercy  Ruth 2:8-9
So Boaz said to Ruth, “My daughter, listen to me. Don’t go and glean in another field and don’t go away from here. 
Stay here with the women who work for me.
Watch the field where the men are harvesting, and follow along after the women. I have told the men not to lay a hand on you. 
And whenever you are thirsty, go and get a drink from the water jars the men have filled.”
6. The honest will not be short of good things  Ruth 2:14
At mealtime Boaz said to her, “Come over here. Have some bread and dip it in the wine vinegar.”
When she sat down with the harvesters, he offered her some roasted grain. She ate all she wanted and had some left over. 
7. The honest will always think of others  Ruth 2:18
She carried it back to town, and her mother-in-law saw how much she had gathered.
 Ruth also brought out and gave her what she had left over after she had eaten enough.
8. The one who blesses will be blessed  Ruth 2:20
 “The Lord bless him!” Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. “He has not stopped showing his
kindness to the living and the dead.” She added,
 “That man is our close relative; he is one of our guardian-redeemers
