In the first part of chapter 2, we saw a new character named Boaz, burst onto the scene of our narrative. Through Boaz, we got a glimpse of the provision and protection that we ultimately see fulfilled in Jesus. We learned that Boaz is intended to point us to Christ, as our great shelter through the famines of this life. This week, we see Ruth and Boaz experience what amounts to their first date. We see an almost comical amount of grace showered on Ruth as Boaz lavishes blessing upon blessing on his future bride. This chapter ends with Boaz, Ruth and the audience waiting to see what will happen next. We are reminded that God’s blessings are found in His presence, that our satisfaction is found at the table of our Redeemer and that in our waiting--God’s timing is always perfect. Our God is a God of astounding grace!
