This coloring page about Ruth shows the young woman gleaning grain from a field. This is a major part of the story of Ruth & Naomi.

When she rose to glean, Boaz instructed his young men, saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her. And also pull out some from the bundles for her and leave it for her to glean, and do not rebuke her.”  So she gleaned in the field until evening. Then she beat out what she had gleaned, and it was about an ephah of barley. And she took it up and went into the city. Her mother-in-law saw what she had gleaned. She also brought out and gave her what food she had left over after being satisfied. (Ruth 2:15-18 ESV)

    Thank you, Carlos. This was exactly what I was looking for, for my four year old Sunday School class. Simplicity at its best. Not only will we color it, we will sprinkle and glue oatmeal flakes for grain. You are a blessing to the kingdom.

  11. Dorcas says

    I am grateful for your Sunday school tips and lesson outlines. It makes me more relaxed when planning for what to teach the children. The kids get to have a happier time in class and I get to have more confidence teaching them. There parents are happy that they have coloring pages to stick on their walls at home. The outlines and the songs have been of tremendous help to me and my church here in Germany.
    God bless you and preserve you.
    May you be highly rewarded IJN.
    Remain Heaven bound.

    I teach children’s church at a small Baptist church. I also work outside the home. The materials you offer on your website are priceless to me. God bless you for offering these to everyone. I don’t know what I’d do without your well-planned lessons and craft ideas. The children love them, and they leave the church having learned a valuable lesson while having fun. Thanks again!!

  16. Pastor Ken says

    Thanks Carlos, it’s great to find these resources online. Very appreciated!

  17. Emily says

    Thank you for sharing this ministry and your gifts. I am the troop coordinator for an American Heritage Girls troop in Virginia. I am taking about 30 young ladies gleaning tomorrow to support a couple of different organizations in our area. Most of the girls had never heard the word “gleaning” before and it was a joy for me to share with them the story of Ruth and fun to be able to share this coloring page. It really helped them relate to their service and their legacy of faith. Blessings!
