In this passage from the book of Ruth, Naomi returns to the land of Judah and to God. Her Moabite daughter-in-law, Ruth, is determined to go with her despite the hardships and potential persecution she might find there. Ruth’s love for Naomi was committed and self-sacrificing. Like Ruth, and even more so like Christ, we are called to love God and to love one another with a committed, sacrificial love. From our Sunday service at Grace Bible Church of Bend.
