Ruth’s prospects must have seemed grim, having just arrived at her mother-in-law’s home town. In a foreign country, surrounded by people she didn’t know, with no shared clan history. She went to work straight away to support their little family of two, and to her surprise received a spectacularly favourable and totally unexpected welcome on her first day on the job. Ruth’s experience is an example of God’s compassion and kindness and generosity towards us. He cares deeply for those who are alone, without family or resources.
