According to the Law, the Hebrews were to leave the edge rows of their fields for the poor. This act revealed that they knew God was the giver of the harvest and that they were God's representatives to the poor. In our passage today, as Ruth goes and gathers wheat, she catches Boaz's attention and he shows her kindness and even welcomes her at his table. While love might be in the air, the greater beauty in the story is that Boaz is a picture of His God and the promised future Redeemer. The faithfulness of Boaz to God's call will include him in the family tree of the future Redeemer for Israel.
