In today’s scripture we read the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz Naomi had two sons, one of which was married to Ruth. Both the sons were killed, and so Naomi sets to return home to Israel, and tells he daughters-in-law to remain in their homeland where they will have a better chance to get remarried and survive.
But Ruth remains loyal and Naomi to returns to Israel with her.
The scripture that stood out to me was Ruth 1:16 which says, “But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.”
