Naomi’s despair paled in comparison to what she gained. Although the loss of her husband and two sons was devastating, God restored through Boaz and Ruth not only another son, but ultimately brought forth the greatest king Israel had ever known. What neither Naomi nor the author of Ruth knew was that God himself would come to earth through her line, being himself the redeemer for all mankind. Through Christ, humanity’s eternal despair is transformed into eternal hope.

God uses Boaz to provide rest and redemption to Ruth, a vulnerable woman from a despised nation. God wants to use His people as instruments of righteousness and redemption in a crooked generation, just as Boaz and Ruth were during the period of the judges.
Often times we find ourselves in seasons of confusion and difficulty much like Ruth and Boaz. In this morning's short meditation from Ruth 2 we look at Ruth and Boaz to see how they exemplified some the important things we should do during those seasons of life.
