Ruth 1:1-22. Naomi leaves Israel with 3 men in her family and returns years later with one Moabitess daughter-in-law. Ruth, the Moabitess, expressed more faith than Naomi as they returned to The Promised Land. Naomi had suffered such tragedy in losing her husband and then her 2 sons. She had become bitter over her life and concluded that God’s hand was against her. However, she would discover that God’s hand of redemption was extended to her and would bring something beautiful out of something so tragic.
