Ruth: A Faithful Daughter-in-Law

Naomi grew up in Israel, but after she became married, she and her husband moved to Moab. They had two sons. One son married a woman named Orpah, and the other son married a woman named Ruth.

Later, Naomi's husband died, and her sons died, too. When Naomi told her two daughters-in-law that she was going back to Israel, Ruth said, "I will go with you!"

Naomi and Ruth arrived in Israel at harvest time. Because they had no food, Ruth said she would go gather grain that the workers had left in one of the fields.

Boaz, the owner of the field, noticed Ruth working hard. He made sure Ruth got plenty of grain. When Ruth brought the grain home, Naomi was surprised. Naomi said, "Boaz took good care of you!"

Boaz continued to show kindness to Ruth. Later they got married and had a little boy. The boy's name was Obed; this boy was to become the grandfather of David, who would be a great king in Israel.

Naomi was glad she had come back to Israel. Now she had a wonderful grandson, and Ruth had found a good husband and home!

See if you can find your way through the grain baskets.
