Ruth and Naomi Return to Bethlehem

Ruth 1:19-22 NRSV

So Naomi returned together with Ruth the Moabite, her daughter-in-law, who came back with her from the country of Moab. They came to Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest. (Ruth 1:22)

Ruth didn’t have to, but she stayed with her mother-in-law out of love and compassion. What an awesome model to follow.
