Scriptures:

 

Ruth 1:6-18

Naomi and Ruth Return to Bethlehem

When Naomi heard in Moab that the Lord had come to the aid of his people by providing food for them, she and her daughters-in-law prepared to return home from there. With her two daughters-in-law she left the place where she had been living and set out on the road that would take them back to the land of Judah.

Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go back, each of you, to your mother’s home. May the Lord show you kindness, as you have shown kindness to your dead husbands and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband.”

Then she kissed them goodbye and they wept aloud 10 and said to her, “We will go back with you to your people.”

11 But Naomi said, “Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Am I going to have any more sons, who could become your husbands? 12 Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me—even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons— 13 would you wait until they grew up? Would you remain unmarried for them? No, my daughters. It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has turned against me!”

14 At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her.

15 “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.”

16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” 18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.

 

2 Timothy 1:5-7

I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

 

 

 

Going Deeper with Better Together

“Family First”

February 19th, 2017

 

 

Warm Up:

Who is in your family and how would you describe your family?

What would your definition of family be?

 

 

Diving In:

  • What is the best thing about your family?
  • In the story of Ruth & Naomi we see the strength of commitment between Ruth and her mother-in-law. Would you have made the same choice Ruth did?

Why or why not?

  • What does it mean to put your family first for you?

What would be some examples of that in your home/life?

  • In Philippians 2:1-4 the apostle Paul offers a life imitating Christ’s humility that leads us to look to others’ interests and not just our own? For most of us that is not something we can do on our own but rather through the work of Christ’s Spirit working in us. How important is this to a marriage? Parenting? Any and all relationships?
  • Sometimes putting others first has this sense of never saying no or setting any boundaries. What are your thoughts on that?
  • In 2 Timothy 1:5 we hear about Timothy’s family that has influenced his life and relationship with God. How have people in your life influenced you in this way?

 

Take Home:

  • Take some time tomorrow to honour God in the way you celebrate Family Day.
Consider praying for your family every day.
