II. RUTH’S RESPECT FOR NAOMI

1. She reported back to Naomi. Verse 18, she showed her the respect due to a mother.

2. She thought of Noami during her labours. “She . .  gave to her that she had reserved after she was sufficed,” verse 18. The word “sufficed” links her giving to the meal in the field, verse 14. She was thinking of Naomi as she enjoyed Baoz’s kindness and provision. She who was hard-working in the fields was kind-hearted in the home.

3. They both rejoiced at God’s provision. So it aught to be with us all and even more so as we enjoy a greater measure of bounty than did these women.
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters,” Psalm 23:2.

“He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; and sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase,” Psalm 107:35-37.
