Ruth 2:8-13

A WARM WELCOME

“So Boaz said to Ruth, ‘My daughter, listen to me. Don’t go and glean in another field and don’t go away from here. Stay here with my servant girls” Ruth 2:8, NIV.

C. E. Macartney said, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me; I lift my lamp beside the golden door”. This is a heart full of warm welcome! Boaz, in the passage, gave a warm welcome to Ruth in his fields. After inquiring who Ruth was, he allowed her to glean among the sheaves behind the harvesters. She was also allowed to get a drink from the water jars the men have filled. Afterwards, she paid obeisance to Boaz for the kind welcome (v. 10). In response, Boaz made reference to the kindness Ruth had shown to her mother-in-law. This is a picture of the Yoruba adage which says, “If you pour water before you, you will step on wet ground”.
The message is clear here that as a child of God, hospitality should be a lifestyle because by doing this, you may entertain angels without knowing it (Hebrews 13:2). Ruth counted herself a stranger, yet she received a warmly welcome from Boaz. Be ready to welcome the weak, poor, wretched and homeless into your home, and relieve them of their unpalatable experiences. Decide to act this out today as you go about your activities.

Birthday Blessing: “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you…” Isaiah 55:12

RBT Passage: Jeremiah 22 - 24

“Hospitality pictures aspects of God’s generous love in the gospel”. – Jonathan Leeman

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
