The last message from the book of Judges ended in despair and tragedy. Certainly, the last words of the book rang true: In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes. In this message, we will tie in the story of Ruth and show how even in the darkest moments of Israel’s history, God was still at work to redeem his people. The book of Ruth is a bright light in the midst of darkness.
