Life Grp Q’s
“Love’s Request”

Ruth 3


Think of a time you really “put yourself out there” with a question. It could have been asking someone to go out, applying for a job, asking for help, etc. Was it hard to ask and wait? Was it worth it?


In the message this week, was there anything that particularly caught your attention, challenged or confused you?

Going deeper:

When did you realize that you could not save yourself ? How did you make your request?

Using chapters 1-3, describe these people: RUTH, NAOMI, BOAZ

-From the last question, what is ‘prescriptive’ for you?


What prescriptive action or behavior is the Holy Spirit calling you to do this week?
