Ruth: Model Servant of Loyalty
Crozetumc   -  

Ruth was not one of the chosen people of Israel, but rather a Moabite, from a people despised and villainized in the Scriptures.  Yet her pledge to remain with her mother-in-law after her husband dies, has been used in weddings for its steadfast commitment.  When things were bad, and the future looked bleak, Ruth valued her relationship with Naomi over her own comfort or ease.  She models what it means to be loyal through thick and thin, and reveals how we can strive to embody such a beautiful friendship for others.  Come discover the redemptive story about a foreign woman, who was loyal and changed the course of history for her friend.  What a great example of love for another!
