Ruth's mother-in-law has an idea for Ruth to snag a wonderful husband. It involved sneaking to the man's bed at night!  It sounds shocking and could definitely appear scandalous but is actually innocent.  A beautiful romantic love scene unfolds. It's not hard to fill in the details of this relationship between Ruth and Boaz. My guess is that she already recognized that Boaz was very attracted to her. After all, she had already been married and understood the man-woman relationship. So, while she may have been nervous about what her mother-in-law told her to do, I'm thinking she knew in her heart that Boaz would be very happy to find her there at the foot of his bed.  

However you might imagine the details of this love story, the truth I'd like to share for today is that Jesus loves us as Boaz loved Ruth. Jesus doesn't force his lordship into our lives. God woos us, and He loves adopting us into the family. Ultimately, by the way, we are the bride of Christ, just as Ruth became the bride of Boaz.
