Accourding to rules

 

Ruth 3:12 "Now it is true I am a close relative; YET, there is a relative closer than I.”

 Boaz and Ruth is the best love story in the Bible, not because of the ‘romance’ quotient in it but because their relationship oozes with God.  Amen.  Those of you who are confused, anxious and bit troubled about your life partner, I guess you have great lessons from the book of Ruth. 

Naomi sends Ruth in the night to go to Boaz and asked her to lie at his feet,  Ruth replied obediently  "All that you say I will do."  She never asked, ‘how can I be sure he is the guy’, ‘this plan seems weird’( as a matter of fact it is) well, she just unconditionally obeyed the woman from whom she heard about Jehovah God.  Amen.  Listen, when the motive of your action is obedience and fulfilling the will of God, then God will never allow you to go in the wrong direction, but if you have already decided to go your way then the result is chaos.

Boaz was shocked to see Ruth inside his bed room; however, his actions and words are priceless, he does not take advantage of the situation, he gently told her “ Yes, I am your close relative and I have rights to redeem you, YET, there is another man who is closer than me, so I need to check with him before I go ahead in this matter.  Isn’t he a gem of a man?  Boaz was middle aged, while Ruth though a widow was young, he knew her good character and hard work, YET instead of grabbing her to be his wife, he patiently waits for God to clear the way.  Wow this is amazing!  I can hear Boaz telling Ruth, ‘ well let’s do it the right way, according to the custom and rules of this society.’ Psalm 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.”

We cannot do whatever seems right in our eyes, are you listening?  Rules have to be followed, the Bible says: Deuteronomy 12:8        "You shall not do at all what we are doing here today, every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes.”  "Every way of man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts." (Proverbs 21:2).

 Driving the car with a license, using the computer with software purchased rather than pirated software, doing business with proper Government permit, constructing houses or churches with proper government approvals are all essential factors to be followed by every Christian.
