Elimelech’s Story: How Not to Respond to a Crisis

June 12, 2022 | Luke Davydaitis

We start our series on the book of Ruth looking at the choices made by Elimelech at a hard time for God’s people. Luke set the scene for the story and reminded us that leaving God is never a good idea but that there is always a way home.

(The songs which followed this message when it was preached, which are not on the recording, are Runaway by Jess Ray, and Great Is Thy Faithfulness by Thomas Chisholm.)

If you are looking for Bible passages to read and use to help with repentance, try Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Psalm 51,  Psalm 103, Hosea 2:14-3:5, Luke 15, John 21:15-19.
