Do you see the sadness here?!  From Abraham depending on Egypt for help instead of God, way back in Genesis, to his nephew, Lot, living a life that resulted in a horrible legacy, to Naomi’s family trusting their own way and going to live with the wicked Moabites; all these bad choices by God’s people were met by one of the “wicked Moabites” that choosing to follow God.  Go Ruth!  However…

There was another.  You may recall that Naomi had two sons, which means there were two daughters-in-law.  What happened to the other?  She went back to her old life after her husband died.  If fact, Naomi pushed her into leaving, specifically telling the girl to go back to her gods.  What was the name of this poor, misguided girl?
