So, Naomi returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth the Moabite, her daughter-in-law, arriving in Bethlehem as the barley harvest was beginning.
Naomi returned to the House of Bread in harvest. The greatest citizen of Bethlehem said, Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. (Jn.12:24). He spoke of his own death, whereby he would share resurrection with those who believe on him.
Who formed our ruined souls anew and made us heirs of heaven. (J. Walker).
