But Ruth said:
Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me. Ruth 1:16-17
We all seem to say “I love you” in different ways. It’s often best said through actions, though. Ruth showed her love for Naomi by staying with her and by working hard to support them both. Ruth loved Naomi so she trusted her advice in going to Boaz. Boaz was also a man of action, immediately taking care of providing for Ruth and Naomi and becoming the redeemer for these women. We may not always hear the words, “I love you,” but, if we listen, we may hear them through the kind actions of someone towards us.
