And the women of the neighborhood gave him a name, saying, “A son has been born to Naomi.” They named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.
Obed’s name did become famous –mentioned over and over in the genealogy of Jesus. I can’t help but think he must have been loved and cherished by his parents and his grandmother Naomi and maybe even his paternal grandmother, Rahab. Not to mention the people of Bethlehem, who adored his entire family.
Don’t you love happy endings? I do.
