Sermon Notes:

Today we will look at the very practical ways that Boaz honors Ruth (and others) in ways that are strong and masculine, while not being chauvinistic. Boaz is a great catch for Ruth based on 15 indicators in the text.

  • His character (Ruth 2:1).

  • Boaz prays for her. (Ruth 2:12)
  • Boaz comforts her. (Ruth 2:13)
