III. A HUMBLE RESPONSE TO GOD’S GRACE BRINGS YET MORE GRACE
1. She thankfully prays that his favour might continue. She did not feel that she needed no more help from him, that she could now make it on her own. May God give us a desire that we may continue to enjoy the comforts and friendliness of God, verse 13.
2. Immediately she is further blessed. She is entertained amongst the workers of Boaz.
3. Boaz attends her himself. Verse 14. What a picture of the caring Saviour! She is given parched or roasted corn and vinegar of wine. Both speak to us of the cross and it is of such rich fare that Christ feeds our souls. Notice that Ruth was “sufficed.”
4. Unknown to her, the favour increases. Verse 15-16. Her path was strewn with favours. 2 Cor 8:9. All things work for God’s faithful people.
