Ruth, Day 3 Readings

It Happened One Night  

Today's reading hints at the romance between Boaz and Ruth.  Despite the fact that she is a poor foreigner, the wealthy landowner protects and provides for Ruth.  Ruth, following her mother-in-law's advice, uses her womanly powers to convince Boaz to make a proposal for her hand -- in fact, one might say that she even seduces him one night.

Read Ruth 3:1-18  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
