Today Boaz and Ruth have a son named Obed and the women all say to Naomi, “Blessed be the Lord, who has not left you this day without a close relative; and may his name be famous in Israel!” Obed becomes the father of Jesse who becomes the father of King David landing a former widow Moabite woman, Ruth, in the lineage of Jesus Christ! So Naomi goes from Mara back to Naomi and the Lord continues working His plan through His people. This concludes the Judges Era. 🎉
The Kingdom Era begins with a story about Hannah, a barren woman. Her husband has another wife, Peninnah, and they have children together. This family goes every year to worship at Shiloh where the sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, are priests. Peninnah, ”a mean church girl”, makes Hannah miserable by tormenting her because the Lord had closed her womb. So Hannah weeps and isn’t able to eat. We have learned that the Lord is the one who opens the womb in His timing to accomplish His purposes as He did with Sarah, Rebekah, and Rachael. Will He do the same for Hannah?
