The story of Ruth is a story of genuine familial love and uncompromising sacrifice. This story also demonstrates that there are no “accidents” in life and that God is sovereignly in control. In Part 1 of Ruth, the mother Naomi loses both of her sons and decides to return to her homeland, but one daughter-in-law makes an astonishing decision that will affect the future kingship of Israel.
God rewards faithfulness and abundantly blesses those who seek to live obedient lives. Ruth’s sacrificial decision to stay with and protect her mother-in-law results in her finding love again and bearing a son whose descendants will include King David as well as Jesus Christ.
