A Culture of Blessing

Ruth 2: 10 At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground. She asked him, “Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me—a foreigner?”

Boaz has created a culture of blessing. He notices people (even the foreigner and the unbeliever) and he blesses them (not just Ruth, but all of his workers). As a lone woman, Ruth would have been vulnerable to assault in the fields. Boaz guarantees her safety. Then he continues to bless her without her knowledge by asking his men to give her extra grain and to let her glean wherever she would like.

What does it mean to be a blesser? Boaz notices, welcomes, guarantees safety, quenches thirst, and feeds. How might a culture of blessing grow in your own home?
