"Watch the field where the men are harvesting, and follow along after the women. I have told the men not to lay a hand on you. And whenever you are thirsty, go and get a drink from the water jars the men have filled.” Ruth 2:9
I am pretty certain that giving this much protection to a woman he did not know would have raised a few eyebrows. Can you imagine if a farmer (think of the biggest farm you can) in today's time said to someone that was coming onto their land and gathering the crops that were missed, said this? It would not happen. In today's time Ruth would have been arrested for trespassing and stealing.... maybe we can all lean a little from this story. There have been many studies done on Esther, Job, Revelations...maybe its time to study Ruth.
Here are some pics (we did a pic swap last night
