3) Ruth was respectful.
After Boaz did his research, he then approached her and showed compassion and favor towards her.
Boaz even protected her from other men in the field. He really cared about her.
When you know your worth, you will not just accept anything that comes your way, but you will wait on God’s best for you.
The way Ruth responded to Boaz showed how she felt about him. “At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground. She asked him, “Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me—a foreigner?”
Boaz replied, “I’ve been told all about what you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband—how you left your father and mother and your homeland and came to live with a people you did not know before. May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge” (Ruth 2:10-12).
Boaz adored Ruth. He admired her loyalty and dedication to her mother-in-law. He spoke nothing but blessings over her life.
God will send you a husband who cares about your soul and that will lead you to Christ not away from Him.
