Ruth, a Moabitess, accepts the one God and joins her mother-in-law, Naomi, when she returns to Judah.  Both women are widows with no visible means of support, but through trusting God, Ruth finds food for them in the fields of Boaz, a relative of Naomi's husband.

Boaz praises Ruth for her rare devotion to her mother-in-law and to God, which was known among the people of Bethlehem.  He later marries Ruth and provides a home for her and Naomi.  His words to Ruth are true for everyone who loves God, "The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust." (Ruth 2:12).

The account shows God's direction and protection, as well as Ruth's, Naomi's, and Boaz's, genuine care for one another's welfare.  Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of writes: "Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love.  It is unselfish; therefore, it cannot exist alone but requires all mankind to share it."  (Science and health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 57.
