Redeemed – Man as Instructor

“So Boaz took Ruth, and she became his wife. And he went in to her, and the Lord gave her conception, and she bore a son... They named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.” – Ruth 4:13, 17b ESV
Pastor Woodrow Kroll tells the story of a father and son who built a model sailboat. Before launching the boat on its maiden voyage, the father tied a string to its stern to keep it from sailing too far. The boat sailed beautifully, but tragically, a motorboat crossing the lake cut the string, and the sailboat drifted out of sight. A few weeks later the boy passed his favorite toy store and saw his lost sailboat in the window. He ran inside to claim it. The store owner refused to give it back. “You may have been its maker,” he said, “but as its finder, it now belongs to me. You may buy it back for $50.” The boy was stunned at the cost, but he set about earning the money. Later he walked into the store and handed the owner $50. As he left the store, he held the boat up to the sunlight. Its colors gleamed. He mused, “I once owned you, but I lost you. Now I’ve bought you back. That makes you twice mine.”
Just like the story of the lost boat, every great story has a great ending. The story of Ruth has one of the best. In chapter 4, the story concludes with a reversal of all of the tragedies from chapter one. The loss of Naomi’s husband and her sons is reversed at the end of the book as Ruth marries Naomi’s relative, Boaz, and gives birth to a new son which brings great joy to all. Also, just as the opening tragedy was followed by a great act of loyalty on the part of Ruth, at the end of the book, that is matched by Boaz’s act of great loyalty as the Kinsman Redeemer that leads to Naomi’s family finally being restored.
