The book of Ruth (Chapters 1-4) in the Bible paints a narrative of a devoted woman (RUTH) who is loyal to her mother in law during the days of the judges.  Being a Moabite  woman in a time of faithlessness, Ruth denied her pagan heritage to cling to her mother in law who was a believer of the God of Israel. 

In the story, Ruth presents us with a great picture of loyalty and obedience. It doesn't go unnoticed because in the end God rewarded her faithfulness wit her husband Boaz and their son Obed. 

 

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

 

The book of Ruth is the Narrative of a love story, yet also has some important Genealogy. The timeline of this book is intertwined during the period of the Judges. The author was anonymous but some believe it was perhaps written by Samuel the prophet; however, it is unlikely that he was alive when this book was written. It was written about 1046-1035 B.C. Key personalities include Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz.

Its purpose was to demonstrate the kind of love, and faithfulness that God desires for us. It shows the difference between what happens when a nation does not follow in obedience to the covenant of God (Judges), and when God’s people follow in faithfulness within the covenant (Ruth).
