The story of Ruth in the Old Testament teaches a great truth that God has not forgotten His people. He provided a husband and son for Ruth, a redeemer for Naomi, and a King for His people. But the bigger, better story of redemption that Ruth teaches is that God has provided a Savior for the world.
The bigger, better story of redemption that Ruth opens as it closes, is that not only has God not forgotten us, but that God is with us, through the One True King – Jesus! And that bigger, better story of redemption has three implications for us: it upsets the values of the world; it removes our labels; and it gives us our ultimate rest in Jesus.
