57% of American Evangelicals agree with the statement, “Everyone sins a little, but most people are good by nature.” It’s easy to see why most people would affirm this statement. But what does the Bible teach? The Bible paints a different picture of human beings.
The Lord has indeed blessed Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz, and through their offspring, he has blessed the world. The promises made to Abraham are being fulfilled faithfully and meticulously by Yahweh. In a fantastic arc of redemption, the Lord reverses the fortunes of Naomi and restores her beyond her most fantastic dreams. Her blessings are not confined to her only but are the beginnings of a universal reversal. A King is coming!
