Ruth’s story

We find Naomi and her daughter-in-law Ruth in a pickle, with no men to care for them and no heir to pass on the family name. Naomi's husband dies then her two sons die as well. Decidedly going home to Bethlehem, Ruth in tow, Naomi stops and instructs Ruth to go back to her mother's house in Moab to remarry. Ruth refuses to leave Naomi. It is clear in the text that Ruth loves her mother-in-law and is willing to start a new life in a foreign land with her. Ruth recites one of the most beautiful passages in scripture, "Where you go I will go, where you live I will live, Your people shall be my people, and your God shall be my God...". Talk about loyalty!
