Lesson Title>>> AMAZING LOVE: Finding And Living Real Love
Lesson Objective>>> To help students contrast the world’s idea of love with the real examples of love found in the Bible.
Scripture Focus>>> Ruth 1:16-18; 2:8-12; 4:9-15
Overview>>> Students today are bombarded with messages and images of love . . . or at least what the world would like them to believe is love. From billboards and magazine ads to commercials and Internet pop-ups, everyone is trying to appeal to teenagers’ desire to love and be loved. These messages are usually motivated by the desire to sell a product, but they serve to erode and confuse students’ concept of healthy, God-centered love. God’s view of love isn’t about manipulation, as is evidenced through the Bible. The Bible is full of examples of the real, lasting love that flows in and through us when God is at the center of who we are. And the Book of Ruth is an awesome look at what this love looks like. The story of Boaz and Ruth is one of the great love stories of all time, and while it’s important for students to grasp what real, God-centered love looks like, Ruth’s story isn’t just a love story. It has a lot to teach us about God’s character, and even points toward the future when Christ will come and bring His example of perfect, redeeming love for all people.
