Ruth meets Boaz

When she got up to glean, Boaz instructed his young men, “Let her glean even among the standing sheaves, and do not reproach her. You must also pull out some handfuls for her from the bundles, and leave them for her to glean, and do not rebuke her.” (Ruth 2:15-16, NRSV)

And not only did Boaz invite this outsider, this foreigner into the group and feed her and give her water, he told his men to leave some of the best for her, and to protect her and not send her away.

When have we done this for the outsider?

When have we protected the vulnerable?

When have we included the stranger?
