Ruth Follows Naomi

The Story of the Moabites & God’s Love for Foreigners/Widows

Today’s Reading:


  1. When Naomi told her two daughters-in-law that she was going home to Bethlehem, what were their two different responses?
  2. Read what Ruth said to Naomi again. Why did Ruth make the decision she made?
  3. Discuss whether you are more like Naomi, Orpah or Ruth. Imagine what it would be like to leave all your friends and your family and know you would never come back home again.
  4. What did Ruth’s people the Moabites do to the nation of Israel several years before this story? How were the Israelites supposed to treat needy people like widows, orphans and foreigners? How have you cared for the needy recently?
