Living Under God’s Favor and Blessing
Ruth 2:12 (ESV) … “The Lord repay you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge!”
Boaz has heard of Ruth’s selfless loyalty to Naomi and is so impressed with the report that he makes sure that she is looked after, and that there are special gleanings left for her in the fields. When we live in accordance with God’s will and word, we find ourselves under his umbrella of blessings and favor. Sin and selfishness will always remove us from God’s favor.
