Ruth 4:13 So Boaz married Ruth and took her home to live with him. When he slept with her, the LORD enabled her to become pregnant, and she gave birth to a son.
The book of Ruth is a love story. It portrays the account of Ruth’s life as she learned to first love God and then Boaz. We discover how Ruth showed love and respect for her mother-in-law, Naomi. We learn how a godly woman acts in a strange land. We learn how God showed His love for Ruth by protecting her from unwelcome advances and blessed her for her strong work ethic.
Ruth reminds us of God’s sovereignty as He brought Ruth and Boaz together in the most unlikely of circumstances. We see God at work in both of their lives and because God was in control of their lives, great and unexpected things happened. Boaz and Ruth were married and had a son. Their son became the grandfather of King David. God had a plan and worked it out behind the scenes in the lives of two humble, submissive, godly people.
We don’t know what God is up to in our lives. We don’t know what difference our lives will make for all of eternity in someone else’s life. Live humbly and submissively before God and strive to be holy in all you do, and God will bless you and many others because you do. Great is the reward in heaven for those who let Jesus be lord of their lives.
