New International Version
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. “May I continue to find favor in your eyes, my lord,” she said. “You have put me at ease by speaking kindly to your servant—though I do not have the standing of one of your servants.” At mealtime Boaz said to her, “Come over here. Have some bread and dip it in the wine vinegar.” When she sat down with the harvesters, he offered her some roasted grain. She ate all she wanted and had some left over.
What kind of payment do you want? You know God will repay what you give out. Just to be able to love and be loved as Boaz loved Ruth. That’s the way Jesus loves us He loved us so much that He laid down His life, His feelings to just give back to us. We as people don’t know how to love the way God does. He give’s everything. Boaz was willing to give Ruth everything she needed. At what cost are we willing to do for others? Will our feelings always have to matter over someone else? When Jesus was on the cross I don’t think He was worried about His feelings and what was about to happen to Him it was about the people and everyone around Him. Maybe today do something for someone else. Think about them more than just yourselves today.
