April 19 – Ruth 2:14-16

April 19 – Ruth 2:14-16

14 And at mealtime Boaz said to her, “Come here and eat some bread and dip your morsel in the wine.” So she sat beside the reapers, and he passed to her roasted grain. And she ate until she was satisfied, and she had some left over. 15 When she rose to glean, Boaz instructed his young men, saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her. 16 And also pull out some from the bundles for her and leave it for her to glean, and do not rebuke her.”


Again, kindness is the word of the day. What an example Boaz has become to the young men that labor for him. His example of kindness and provision was spoken into the very being of these young men. He has blessed them by showing them how people in need are to be treated. In a world filled with greed today, may we be a blessing of provision for someone God places in our path.


 Heavenly Father, what favor You give me.  You treat me as if I am Your only beloved child.  I don’t deserve anything, yet You give me the best You have.  Thank You for helping me see Your glory through these verses and how loved I am.  Thank You for helping me realize the peace and love You give, is not from the world, or circumstances, but from You.  Help me realize happiness is temporary, and joy, true joy that can only come from You, is always my choice.  Help me always choose joy.

In Jesus’ name.
