This young lady had her whole life ahead of her; she was still very attractive and marriageable when her mother-in-law gave her the option to stay back, remarry and start a new life. She chose her mother-in-law’s welfare above hers, she considered that her mother-in-law was old and she let couldn’t let her travel that long journey back to her hometown all by herself.
This young lady chose to abandon her own hometown and all that she was familiar with and follow the old woman. She was taking care of her, working for food and keeping the lonely lady company.
People were watching her and talking about her kindness to the old woman, a man capable of marrying her and turning her life around for the best also heard of her.
When we do good deeds motivated by love, people who are capable of blessing us will see and hear.
And Boaz said to her, I have been made fully aware of all you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband, and how you have left your father and mother and the land of your birth and have come to a people unknown to you before. Ruth 2:11 (AMP)
