The biblical story of Ruth is retold in modern times. A tale of love, faith, and the journey of two women to find their new life and family while trusting God.

 

Naomi, who lost all her sons, felt burdened with her two daughters-in-law as she could not give them sons to provide for them.  She tells her daughters to leave her and find new husbands. Ruth stayed with her while the other left to return to her own family.  Ruth says, "do not urge me to leave you or to turn back from following you. For wherever you go, I will go, and wherever you stay, I will stay. Your people shall be my people and your God my God."  Ruth 1:16 MEV.

Ruth and Naomi then journey to find their nearest relative to stay with and start over. Ruth starts to work for Boaz, a wealthy businessman.  Ruth tells Naomi that she met Boaz.  Boaz gives Ruth extra provisions to bring home to Naomi.  He was smart and kind to her.  Being older than Ruth, he did not think she would be interested in him. Naomi realizes Boaz is her kinsman.  She then guides Ruth to his heart and lays at his feet.  A tradition well understood by her people.  Boaz must do the right thing before he can claim her hand in marriage.  Eventually, Boaz marries Ruth.

 

A happy ending for a bitter mother-in-law to find a new lease on life and a grandson to take care of. Ruth finds her new husband, who loves her and provides for her family.  A love story of hope and triumph to trust God for all His provisions. God turned Naomi's bitterness into happiness.  A story of faith in action.
