First, godly relationships require faith (Ruth 1:1-4).
The book of Ruth starts out with a statement saying that this story is in the setting of the time of the judges ruling. On top of that, Ruth is the widowed daughter in law of her widowed mother in law. But God is in control to bring about His right person for us at just the right time.
In the majors, he played 23 years for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland Athletics, and California Angels.
He won a total of 324 games, 58 of them shutouts and five of them one-hitters, and he is eighth on baseball’s all-time strikeout list with 3,574 K’s.
Boaz is a stud who takes care of Ruth from the get-go.
Boaz was attracted to Ruth who was a godly, humble woman.

You’ll only be as loving to your future spouse in your house as you are to your parents there too!
Be attracted to godly hotties and hunks for the right reason…they love Jesus!
Fourth, godly relationships require godly masculinity (2:8-9).
