Please note the following:

 

1.       The book of Ruth opened on the tragedy which befell Naomi in a foreign land. She lost her husband and her two adult children whose wives also became premature widows-Ruth and Orpah.

For the three women it appeared as if their world had ended. Orpah chose to return home. Note that her story ended at that point.

Ruth decided to follow Naomi to her homeland and continue to look after her mother-in-law. She did not know what the future held for her.

 

2.       Her loyalty, steadfastness and humility were richly rewarded as she was able to exchange her poverty for wealth when she got married to Boaz. The product of the marriage was Obed, David’s grandfather and future king of Israel.

 

3.       As Obed’s mother Ruth also shared in the genealogy of Christ, the King of kings, Matt. 1:1-5.

 

4.       And Naomi, a tragic figure in the land of Moab, ended up as a happy grandmother of Obed and, indirectly, a descendant of Christ.

 

5.       The story of Ruth and Naomi shows that God rewards loyal service and humility, two of Ruth’s many attributes.
