Today's reading: Ruth 3:6-18
The account of Ruth and Boaz reminds me of a fairy tale, set in a time from long ago where Boaz is the classic knight in shining armor. But Ruth and Boaz aren’t fictional characters. They're real people and the Book of Ruth sets out the real life story of their relationship.
Today we're turning our spotlight on Boaz. We first met Boaz in Ruth 2, and everything we've seen about this man from that point through chapter 3 has shown him to be a God-fearing and God-following man. Boaz is obviously respected by his men, and his interactions with them and then with Ruth demonstrate that he was honorable, considerate, caring, generous, and responsible—just to point out a few desirable qualities.
What stood out to you as godly qualities from Boaz's actions and words? How would you describe what it is to be a godly man, and explain why that's important, to a young boy or girl? How might you use Boaz's example? Tami
