Read Ruth 1:6 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: How would you react if you spent the night at your friend’s house, and he asked if you wanted to stay forever?
Parent Note: It might be fun for a little bit, but after a while, we would start to miss our own home, our family, our rooms, and all of our stuff. There is a level of comfort we can find only at home. Naomi had lived in Moab for 10 years. After her husband and sons died, she just wanted the comfort of home—a place where she knew the people, the language, and their God.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear Lord, thank you for giving me a home.
I know that You put me in this place at this time for a reason.
Help me to remember that my real home is with You in heaven.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen
