We are continuing with the third part of our series on Ruth this week.
Ruth goes back to Naomi and describes how she has been wonderfully treated and cared for in Bethlehem.
As Ruth shares her experiences we see the key theme of the book of Ruth coming through – a theme of loving kindness, the “promise-keeping love” of God, who is faithful and trustworthy in every way.
The implication of this is that this characteristic of God is reflected through His people. People like you…
We can only live like this if you really know God as a generous God, a God who loves to bless people. Boaz models this, and his actions come as a response to knowing God and his word.
Deuteronomy 10 v 17-19 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.
