Ruth and Naomi Paper Play Set
We don’t often hear about women in the scriptures, and especially in the Old Testament. Perhaps that’s why having an entire book of the Old Testament (albeit a short book) dedicated to the story of Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi, is so profound to me.
The love these women share, even after the deep heartache they must have faced when their husbands died, is a beautiful example to the relationships we can develop in our own families. Ruth stayed by Naomi’s side though she was not obligated to do so. What an example of service and faith! In the long run, after heartache and hardship, poverty and famine, both women are blessed. The story ends happily.
This beautiful bible story can be a great jumping-off point for discussing faith and dedication as well as the sacrifices we make for friends and family members.
