Devotional Beading: Isaiah 58:6-1L All His Children Lesson for July 19, 1959 , THE "BOOK" of Ruth is a very ~short one. It could easily be printed in fairly large type on one page of a newspaper with roora to spare. But it is a mistake to judge writings by their length, otherwise the Congressional Record would be the world's literary masterpiece, and Lincoln's Gettysburg Ad- dress a worthless trifle. As a story, the book of Ruth has a great charm. It is one of those parts of the Bible which we might call God's extras, something which Dr. Foreman could have been left out, but which, once we have it, we would not part with. Ways to Read Ruth One can read this little tale of long ago just as a tale and enjoy its simplicity and beauty. Or one can find in it much sociological interest, what marriage meant in those far-off days, what provisions were made for the very poor, and so forth. One can also enjoy and learn something from the char- acters described in it, each one sketched in a few revealing words. The author is strangely modern at this point. ~rriters today seldom use adjectives (such as heroic, brutal, clever, or what not) about their characters; they just let us see them and judge for ourselves. So it is in tl~e book of Ruth. But the way we propose to look at "Ruth'" is this: the book shows with quiet simplicity how the very kinds of people many of us are in- clined to look down on or shy away from, are God's children. Plain People ~ There is another book in the A. Charles Morgan and Fred Bible telling about the times when Donley were awai~ded Masonic the characters in the story of Grand Lodge 50-Year Membership Ruth were alive; it is the Book of Pi,ns at a stated communication of Judges. It is full of hero-stories. M,t. Nebo Lodge No. 91 in Shep- herdstown. Grand Lecturer Frank But none of those heroes appears Christians in Liberia For Lutherans The Rev. Richard E.
