In reference to the text word, the Chief Apostle told the members that God will never forget them.


“This story teaches us that God never forgets the poor. Naomi was poor and had no money. She was widowed with no chance of having another child. She had nothing. She remained faithful and accepted God's will.  She was not angry with God. Ruth became married and become a mother, after she followed Naomi to Bethlehem. “Brothers and sisters some of us are in distress situations. We feel as though God doesn't love us!  Let us remain faithful.  Let us stay in his land. Let us stay with God in his land and law. The day will come when He will show you He doesn't forget you. He will give you help in a better manner. He never forgets the poor”, he said.
