Series: The Story of Ruth
This is the first sermon in the sermon series, The Story of Ruth: God Works Wonders in the Worst of Times. In the introduction of this sermon we watched a video from The Bible Project. You'll hear the audio of the video in the sermon, but if you would like to watch the video, you can view it on their website.
 In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons.  The name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion. They were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there.  But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons.  These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. They lived there about ten years,  and both Mahlon and Chilion died, so that the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. (Ruth 1:1-5 ESV)
