11 But Naomi said, “Return home, my daughters. Why would you come with me? Am I going to have any more sons, who could become your husbands? 12 Return home, my daughters; I am too old to have another husband. Even if I thought there was still hope for me—even if I had a husband tonight and then gave birth to sons— 13 would you wait until they grew up? Would you remain unmarried for them? No, my daughters. It is more bitter for me than for you, because the Lord’s hand has turned against me!”
14 At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her.
15 “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.”
16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.
Ruth was willing to give up security and the possibility of children to care for Naomi. Even though she was a Moabite, she worshiped the One True God. God accepted her worship and blessed her greatly. God loves and accepts all who fear him and do what is right. God is impartial. Ruth was blessed because of her faithfulness and became the Great-Grandmother of King David, direct ancestor to Jesus. Do you feel disqualified to serve God because of race, gender, or nationality? Do not feel that way. God uses every circumstance to build his Kingdom. Honor, respect, and obey God. Be faithful to God. He loves you, and you are qualified.
