Ruth 3:1-5

1 One day Ruth’s mother-in-law Naomi said to her, “My daughter, I must find a home for you, where you will be well provided for.

2 Now Boaz, with whose women you have worked, is a relative of ours. Tonight he will be winnowing barley on the threshing floor.

3 Wash, put on perfume, and get dressed in your best clothes. Then go down to the threshing floor, but don’t let him know you are there until he has finished eating and drinking.

4 When he lies down, note the place where he is lying. Then go and uncover his feet and lie down. He will tell you what to do.”

5 “I will do whatever you say,” Ruth answered.

6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did everything her mother-in-law told her to do.


Naomi wanted Ruth to have a future filled with everything good, as Ruth deserved for all that she had done for her mother-in-law. As Ruth is preparing for the evening with Boaz, I wonder if she knew how one evening was going to change her life in a good way forever.

"I will do whatever you say" was her response to her mother-in-law. What a attitude, in uncertain times. She trusted Naomi and did not question, she obeyed.
