    The Story of Ruth is one of the sweetest and most touching stories in the Bible. When we read it, and picture the kind of world that was in their little community; the goodness and wholesome simplicity is like a glimpse into the time to come when Jesus and His Saints are ruling the world. Though it so warms my heart on the one hand it makes me so sad for how it is today among so-called Christians.
