This Week’s Passage: Ruth 3
Naomi devises a plan for the young, attractive Ruth to marry the older, distinguished Boaz. The risky and bold plan consists of creating a sexually-charged environment and relying on Bo’s integrity and love to win in the end. And in the end, love does win. Like Yahweh does for Israel, Boaz sweeps Ruth under the shelter of his wings, not as in a porno, but a beautiful story of redemption. Bo is an image of Christ, our redeemer and bridegroom. What risky and bold plan will you concoct to find shelter under the wings of the Most High? How can you take a leap of faith into your bridegroom’s loving arms?
