Only a Foreigner

Ruth fell at his feet and thanked him warmly.
“What have I done to deserve such kindness?” she asked.
“I am only a foreigner.”
Ruth 2:10

Boaz knew Ruth’s background and dedication to Naomi. He saw her serving heart and willingness to work hard. He allowed her to glean his fields. Little did Ruth know God was getting ready to bless her beyond anything she could imagine and make her the wife of this highly respected, godly man.

Ruth saw herself as only a foreigner.

Our pride and feelings of entitlement hinder what God wants to give us. If we see ourselves as undeserving, we might be surprised at the blessings God sends our way.
