Naomi
Ruth 1-4

Imagine being an elderly woman who has outlived her immediate family. For many, this is a reality. Because we have outlived our children, there is no one to take care of us in our old age. We wonder what is to be our fate.

Naomi was the mother-in-law of Ruth and Orpah. Her husband had died and then both of her sons in turn. With no family left, she decided to return to her own country. Maybe there she could survive among her own people. Widows, during those times, had to care for themselves unless another family member agreed to take them in.

As if in answer to a silent prayer, Ruth asked Naomi if she could accompany her back to Bethlehem. At first, Naomi refused. She didn’t want to be a burden to anyone. Besides, she has nothing to offer Ruth (1:12-13). But, Ruth made a passionate plea; Naomi gave in to her request (1:16-17). Though she was not flesh and blood, Ruth desired to care for Naomi. Naomi, who thought she had nothing to offer, helped Ruth to find a new husband, which also secured her future as well.

God does not forsake us in our old age. He continues to bless and provide for us, often times through unlikely means. The important fact is that He will never leave us destitute and alone (Hebrews 13:5).

Do you fear that God will not provide for your needs? _____________________

I always loved the story of Ruth. “God does not forsake us in our old age. He continues to bless and provide for us, often times through unlikely means. The important fact is that He will never leave us destitute and alone (Hebrews 13:5).” This is so wonderful to keep at heart. Wonderful and Blessing Write! Thanks for sharing. God Bless, Helen

A lovely reminder of the LOVE of God and HIS promise to be with us. The article flows very nicely, and the question at the end is a reminder to us to give thought to exactly what do we believe. I enjoyed. Juanita
