God works in the lives of all types of people and in Ruth's story we see God's ready acceptance of anyone who is willing to seek a life of obedience to his way. Ruth married into a family of God's people and when her husband died, she choose to stay with her new family, rather than return to her past life. Ruth chose God's way over man's, and today this choice is the same. Through faithful people like Ruth we see that such a desire is pleasing to God. The Bible shows us that God seeks the same from us.
