I have to admit, I love a good Hallmark movie.
You know the plot: Ms. Sweet-now-Single leaves loss behind and moves back home, where working hard to make a new life, she meets Mr. Everything-You-Could-Ever-Want, who pledges true love and becomes her happily ever after.
What is it about these movies that keeps us coming back? The rescue? The perfect man? Or maybe it’s the true love.
These are the elements in the story of Ruth, the third unlikely woman named in Jesus’ family tree.
But Ruth’s story is so much more than a great romance. Why is Ruth in the genealogy of Jesus? The greatest love story ever.
Ruth’s story starts in the little village of Bethlehem. Yep, that Bethlehem.
