A Story of Suffering and Blessing in Ancient Israel. Ruth’s life experienced suffering. Suffering is part of life. Each of us has experience it to some extent. But there may be times when the anguish in our life seems so intense that it overshadows the blessings. We feel like no one really understands our predicament or knows how to help in our time of sorrow. So we cry alone—like a stranger in a foreign land.
