The Book of Ruth has reminded us of three things so far:

  • Who God is.
  • We don’t go alone.
  •  In our time of need, God offers us protection.

Today we will be reminded to not be afraid because God wants to redeem us. (Just as Boaz wants to marry Ruth.) Ruth shows us God’s devotion and Boaz shows us God’s redemption.

Digging Deeper

Want to get a little deeper into the study? Below are some questions and thoughts to consider based on the sermon message. Feel free to work through them on your own, as a family or in your small group. (Discussion questions for elementary-age kids can be found below.) If you have questions, please contact us.

Discussion Questions:

  • Why was Naomi so concerned with finding a suitable redeemer for Ruth? What were the implications if they found a suitable redeemer – and if they were unable to find one?
  • Ruth’s faithfulness was already seen in how she stayed with Naomi, yet here Boaz says that this act of kindness was even greater than the first. What do you think is significant about what Boaz said he would do for Ruth?
  • If Boaz could be the redeemer for Ruth, then why does he offer up someone else to take his place? What does this reveal about his character?
  • When have you ever sensed God leading you to do something unusual or risky or bold in order to see his plan fulfilled?
  • Boaz was willing to take the responsibility placed in front of him by God to redeem Ruth and Naomi. When God places responsibilities in front of you, how can you be obedient toward God and ready to faithfully do what is asked?
  • Read Luke 12:22-24.
  • How do these verses relate to Ruth chapter 3?
  • What are you most likely to worry about?
  • Has the focus of your worry changed in the last year?
