I.                   When self-…. is at the center of our pursuits in life, we miss God’s best – vv. 1-8.

A.    We tend to be insensitive to the needs of others

B.     We forget the limited nature of our abilities

C.     We miss God’s greatest blessings

II.                God always honors those who honor Him – vv. 9-22.

A.    Boaz’s desire to honor God brought great blessings in his life:

                                                              i.      A godly wife – vv. 9-10.

                                                            ii.      Son – v. 13.

                                                          iii.      Name – vv. 18-22.

                                                          iv.      Part in David’s genealogy – vv. 18-22.

                                                            v.      Part in Christ’s genealogy –

B.     Ruth’s desire to honor God was greatly rewarded

                                                              i.      New family

                                                            v.      A place in the genealogy of the Savior of the world

C.     Our desire to honor God may result in immediate inconveniences but will always be worth it ultimately
