  • Jay
    Ruth was a woman of dedication, faith, and love. In her action toward Naomi, she is showing Jesus words that he will never leave or forsake us. When it seem to Naomi that there was nothing left, ruth step up by the grace of God showing that her love extends to death.
  • CRYSTAL
    Ruth showed a sence of responseability of having a family . She knew family should bond together in good time s or bad, supporting each other to make it better.
  • Christine Awah
    Ruth could be considered as one with unconditional love. Following a mother in law after the death of your husband is not common. She might have also heard about the greatness of the God of her late husband and would prefer to belong to that God instead of those in Moab.
