And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.
“You have showed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning.” This is what our Greater-than-Boaz says to you.
“When you came into My field, that was a blessing. When you showed up at church, when you had morning devotions, when you came into the field to glean the wheat of My Word, you blessed Me. I know you could have gone water skiing. I know you could have stayed home. I know you could have slept in, but you came into My field and you blessed Me.
“And now you’re blessing Me even more by wanting Me to cover you, to redeem you, to rescue you. It’s not an obligation to Me - it’s an elation for Me. You could have sought some young man, some new fad, some exciting trip, but you sought Me - the Ancient of Days. You put aside other alluring pursuits and you sought Me to cover you. You’ve blessed Me.”
Boaz had strength and wealth, pedigree and prosperity. He had everything - except one upon which to pour out his love.
Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things. He, too, has it all. But what He desires is a Bride. And guess what we are! Anyone who will fall before His nail-pierced feet and say, “Cover me,” He will in no wise cast out (John 6:37).
