The Book of Ruth
Ruth 2 | Blessing

Ruth and Naomi are in Bethlehem during the barley harvest. In need of food, Ruth, the young widow goes to “glean” in the fields–collecting what the harvesters do not gather. This is a dangerous endeavor, but Ruth demonstrates loyal lovingkindness to her mother-in-law Naomi, sacrificing her wellbeing for their survival. But, by God’s lovingkindness, she ends up in the field of Boaz, a faithful man who offers her protection, extra provision and the LORD’s Blessing. The God who blesses his people invites her into the blessing.
