Ruth 1:16-18, 2:1-7
One of the most important words in the Old Testament is the Hebrew word "hesed." It's often translated as "steadfast love" or "loving kindness." However, no single English word can fully capture its meaning. The word entails all that God is toward His people through His covenant(s) with them - loving, gracious, faithful, loyal, merciful, etc. As we continue our series in the book of Ruth, we see that one of the primary ways that He displays His hesed is through other people. This week, we consider what it means to reflect God's hesed through our commitment to one another.
