The story of Ruth and Naomi.
It's a beautiful story of love and family.
Naomi lived in the land of Moab due to a famine in Bethlehem. Her husband and two sons died, leaving her with two daughters-in-law. Somehow she heard that Bethlehem once more had bread. (Bethlehem means house of bread). She decided to make the thirty mile or more journey back to her native land.
Three women start out, but Naomi convinced Orpah, a daughter-in-law to turn back and stay with her own kin. She would have more opportunity for marriage if she did. Ruth will not turn back. She uttered that famous verse we find in Ruth: 1:16. "where you go I will go, and where you stay I will say. Your people will be my people and your God my God." NIV.
