She came to her mother-in-law, who said, “How did things go with you, my daughter?” Then she told her all that the man had done for her, saying, “He gave me these six measures of barley, for he said, ‘Do not go back to your mother-in-law empty-handed.’” She replied, “Wait, my daughter, until you learn how the matter turns out, for the man will not rest, but will settle the matter today.” (Ruth 3:16-18, NRSV)
Ruth returned to Naomi with the grain Boaz had given her and reported all that happened. Naomi knew that Boaz would be gracious and caring.
Are we gracious and caring with the people we deal with in our lives?
Are we caring for those who can not care for themselves?
