Wow! What a love story. What was so special about Naomi that Ruth would follow her to a foreign land and worship a foreign God knowing how hard life could be for her as a widow? Naomi was in no shape to care for Ruth, and she was down in the dumps as well. But God certainly had another plan. He would provide a kinsman-redeemer who would change Ruth's life, and Ruth would end up in the royal line of King David and King Jesus.
May God bless you as your family learns about Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz. Your parent page for chapter 9 is attached.
