God provides a godly husband for Ruth, and a kinsman-redeemer for Naomi. But we find that God was at work to do something even greater for His people. He was already at work to provide the as of yet not asked for king to unite, protect & revive His people: David. And He was at work to provide Jesus- the Redeemer.
