Gleanings from Ruth-Not Reaping the Edges

Gleanings from Ruth-Not Reaping the Edges

Passage: Ruth 2:1-7

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Gleanings from Ruth

Gleaning was God's provision for the poor. God did not leave generosity to chance. He created laws designed to place a safety net under orphans, widows and needy people. Landowners were instructed not to harvest every last stalk, but to leave something for the needy. This provision figures prominently in the story of Ruth, a story of two widows living on the edge.
