18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. 19 So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem.
Things come full circle for Naomi. She left Bethlehem with her husband and sons. Tragedy struck. Hardship. And now she is returning to Bethlehem. The only person with her is Ruth.
Ruth’s name means ‘friendship’. She represents God’s faithfulness to Naomi.
We can’t predict the future. How our lives will turn out. Naomi sure didn’t imagine returning home with only Ruth. But we can predict God’s faithfulness, and rely on Him. We can trust Him everyday, and on every path. God is faithful.
