Is Naomi just a manipulative and scheming mother-in-law trying to marry off Ruth to a wealthy but gullible relation or has she more Godly motives? Will unpacks the truth behind this chapter packed with sexual innuendo and reveals what is really going on. Will also draws lessons for us today: There is a time for prayer and a time for human action. We must ask God for discernment to know when to wait and when to act. If we want to be redeemed, we like Ruth must place our trust in God.
