Old Testament – In today’s readings in Ruth we are introduced to the incredible man, Boaz, who is really a “type” of Christ figure. Also in chapter 4 verse 16 the name of David is first mentioned in the Bible! It is awesome to read today how David descended from Ruth, and of course ultimately Jesus descended from Ruth! Today in Ruth chapter 2 verse 10 we read – “Ruth fell at his feet and thanked him warmly. “Why are you being so kind to me?” she asked. “I am only a foreigner.””
And in chapter 3 verse 15 today we read – “Boaz also said to her, “Bring your cloak and spread it out.” He measured out six scoops of barley into the cloak and helped her put it on her back. Then Boaz returned to the town.”
New Testament – Bible.org’s commentary on today’s readings in John titled “Jesus Heals the Royal Official’s Son” is at this link.
Psalms – Psalm 105:19 teaches us Our Lives are not measured by God’s Word . but of who we respond to His Word reveals what is within us.
