After Naomi lost her husband and two sons (one of which was Ruth’s husband of about 10 years), she was distraught.  Instead of going to her mother’s home, Ruth hugged Naomi and was determined to stay with her.  Ruth helped Naomi so much that Naomi was encouraged.

When Ruth decided to press forward with Naomi that day, she showed much compassion and bravery, which later resulted in the line of David.  Ruth was David’s great-grandmother.
