1: What are some answers to the questions "what is marriage for?" Consider/critique those reasons in light of what Scripture says about marriage.
2: We said that both Ruth and Boaz were moving toward marriage for reasons deeper than just "their happiness." What were those reasons? How did God accomplish more than they ever could have imagined through their "yes" to a missional marriage?
3: Give some examples in our day of how a marriage can serve as a means of leading others to the grace of Christ?
4: What is the difference between thinking in terms of "marriage as duty" versus "marriage as gospel-advancing mission?"
5: In observing how Naomi put together a 5-part plan to connect Ruth and Boaz we said that "planning is not manipulation, but an act of love that makes room for gospel-advancing action." If you are someone who views planning with skepticism, how can this truth change the way you think about the planners in your life?
