This story takes place during the time of the ‘judges’ where everyone ‘did as they saw fit’. It was also a time of famine in the land. Famine would be a good way to describe the state of these women’s hearts as well. Naomi decides to go back to her homeland of Judah where she may find some hope for her life being closer to her own people. While on her way to her homeland, Naomi encourages Orpah and Ruth to go back to their homeland/people. What will they do? What will become of these women who find themselves in an ’empty’ place? What will others who encounter them do? What will God do?
