Ruth | Lesson 1 | Wandering

In this week of Bible study, we’ll talk about our propensity to wander. Like Naomi and her family wandered away from the land of God’s promised provision, we tend to wander not from God Himself (who has promised never to leave or forsake us) but from that place where we get to enjoy His presence. Most wandering doesn’t start with all-out rebellion but with an almost innocent wondering: “Is God good to me?” “What if He is holding out on me?”

What causes us to wonder and then wander like that? Where do we tend to roam? Do we recognize the signs of our wanderings? Do we have others in our lives who can recognize it and call us out when we do?

This week, I divided the lesson into two parts—first, my teaching segment and then the interview with Katie, who shares about her own experience with wandering and God’s great faithfulness.
