I Will Redeem You
Passage: Ruth 3:1–18
The third chapter in the book shows Ruth making a bold request of her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz, and displays Boaz' generous heart toward her and her mother-in-law. At the center of the drama is a promise made by Boaz, and the rest of the story will center on whether and how Boaz will keep his word to Ruth. Christians reading this scene today learn important lessons about the providence of God, the courage of Christian decision-making, and the grace of resting in God's promises.
