The Bible has much to say about wisdom. A quick search reveals that it is found more than 200 times in any translation. There are entire books of the bible based on the subject of wisdom. Ruth is one such book. In fact, it is considered to contain such a profound story of wisdom that the Jews place it immediately after Proverbs in the Hebrew Bible.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Ruth is the story of how a woman of wisdom built the house of David. What makes this story so fascinating is the fact that she was a foreigner, a Moabitess, and yet she is still in the lineage of our King and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Ruth represents us all. After suffering through tragedy she left behind the life she knew to follow hard after a God she had previously only had a glimpse of. And He redeemed her.
