Ruth was an outcast in Israelite society. As a widow and a Moabite, she was considered the least of God’s people. Yet God drew her from the fringe of society and incorporated her into both the community of Israel and his plan of salvation. In Ruth, we find a story of love, loyalty, and compassion. And we see how God works through ordinary people to achieve his great purposes.
