The Story of Ruth and Naomi
The story of Ruth and Naomi is one of the most famous stories in the Bible. Naomi and her husband had moved to Moab, where both of them died. Ruth, Naomi’s daughter-in-law, decided to stay with her and care for her. Despite the fact that she was a foreigner in a strange land, Ruth worked hard to provide for Naomi and herself. She worked in the fields of Boaz, a wealthy man who was also a relative of Naomi’s. Ruth eventually married Boaz and they had a son named Obed, who was the father of King David.
The Story of Abigail
Another example of a hard-working woman in the Bible is Abigail. Abigail was married to a foolish and wicked man named Nabal.

She quickly gathered food and supplies for David and his men, saving them from a violent confrontation with Nabal.

She was a godly woman who shared her wisdom and knowledge with others.
