Ruth

Lessons from Ruth

I’ve gained a lot of perspective from reading through the book of Ruth. The story doesn’t give a lot of background on how close Ruth & Naomi were before the deaths of their husbands, but instead of moving back home to live with her [Ruth’s] family she stayed with Naomi to help her out.

The theme of a strong sense of family and loyalty is played out here, and I’m also pleasantly surprised to see that Boaz also was willing to help his family out. Good works in Gods eyes are rewarded. Ruth sacrificed and stayed with Naomi, and in turn she was blessed to have a new husband in Boaz.
