Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Listen carefully. Do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but stay here close by my maids. - Ruth 2:8
If you haven’t been sitting under a rock and know the story of Ruth and Boaz, you should know that Boaz was setting Ruth up to receive her blessings by telling her to stay close.
I’ve been sick and shut in list these past days, so to be able go outside and enjoy God’s beauty is beyond thrilling for me, but to get a message out it is the icing on the cake.
Seeing the remnants of the snow storm still lingering in the midst of the warmth of the day speaks as a reminder that there’s enough here for us all to get blessed. A reminder that we can come from different cultures, religions and backgrounds and excel together. Today in the midst of our government being in array, brokenness in our families, turmoil on our jobs and businesses, it’s my prayer that more of us would speak and do our part for unity and love. We all have the power to be Boaz (and live longer *~*) . The increase comes after the obedience.
