Day 19 Devotional & Discussion – March 2, 2016

RUTH 1:1-5

Naomi and her family emigrated from Israel to Moab because of famine. While in Moab, Naomi lost her primary support network—her husband and her two sons. She was far from home and she was alone. If it hadn’t been for the presence of Ruth and Orpah, her Moabite daughters-in-law, Naomi probably wouldn’t have survived.

Questions for Reflection:

  1. Besides famine/drought, what other reasons might people leave their homes?
  2. Do you think Naomi and her family be welcomed in your community? Why or why not?
  3. What challenges might immigrants face today in your community?
  4. How could you be a support network for an immigrant family?
