Speaking to the Heart
Ruth 1:6-22

We begin a new series at Living Word looking at various people within the Bible and how God spoke to the attitudes of their hearts. This week we look at Naomi and how God sent help to her through Ruth. Press the play button above to listen to the message and view the sermon preview notes below.

This month of February we will be preaching from the theme "Speaking to the Heart." A special emphasis will be placed on how God speaks to us in the midst of some very difficult situations. On our own, we can try our best to minister to the needs of others. Shel SIlverstein wrote a poem called "Helping" that describes two very different kinds of help:

"And some kind of help
is the kind of help
that helping's all about.

And some kind of help
is the kind of help
we all can do without!"
There is the "helping" that isn't truly effective and then there is the help that God provides.

Our sermon text this morning points us to the life of Naomi and shows us the surprising ways in which God provided real help in likely the most difficult time in Naomi's life.

Serving Christ alongside you,
Pastor Kirk Thorson
