Hello again

This is what God gave me today in His word:

Boaz then addressed Ruth: “Listen, my daughter! Don’t glean in any other field. Don’t even leave this one, and be sure to stay close to my women servants. (Ruth 2:8)

Boaz has no real reason to take an interest in Ruth. Just the opposite, in fact; he has every reason to tell her to get out of his field and head elsewhere. But he doesn`t do that, instead help protects and takes care of her.

Jesus was put in much the same situation as Boaz is in this passage; someone who isn`t anywhere near worthy of His attention (us) is trying to “glean” something from His “field” (the Bible)… And He not only takes notice, but promptly proceeds to take care of us in every way.-Proceeds to die for our sin. And, of course, our response should be just as Ruth`s was:

At this she fell prostrate, bowing low to the ground, and asked him, “Why is it that you’re showing me kindness by noticing me, since I’m a foreigner?” (Ruth 2:10)

You are loved!
