Boaz loves Ruth

Ruth 2:14-16

Ruth 2:14 At mealtime Boaz told her, “Come over here and have some bread and dip it in the vinegar sauce.” So she sat beside the harvesters, and he offered her roasted grain. She ate and was satisfied and had some left over.

Ruth 2:15 When she got up to gather grain, Boaz ordered his young men, “Let her even gather grain among the bundles, and don’t shame her.

Ruth 2:16 Pull out some stalks from the bundles for her and leave them for her to gather. Don’t rebuke her.”

Boaz loves Ruth

I read a lot, and a variety of genres, but I don’t usually read romance. Still, it is not hard to see the clues from this narrative that Boaz is being more than helpful to this young woman. The way he expresses his interest in her is delightful. The way he protects her honor is wise.

This is God’s word, and it tells me that our God wants to be part of our lives — even the parts of our lives we tend to keep to ourselves.

Thank you LORD for caring about every area of our lives.
