Ryan's Rhetorical 4

It's been a while, but I'm wondering how ignorance really affects intentions. Whether it's knowing how to express something or express it in a way that's understood by others. Ruth worked in Boaz's field (Ruth 2). There are some things that people don't understand when they first meet. Ruth worked alongside the women in Boaz's field. Boaz told her to stay in his field and work. Ruth saw his kindness and was impressed because she was a foreigner. Ruth gathered barley there all day and had about half a bushel at the end of the day. She carried in back into town and showed her mother in law.(v17,18) Boaz gave her more food than she could eat. He even had heads of barley dropped on purpose for her to gather making life easier for her. (v15,16) Ruth gathered till the end of the barley harvest. He told her what to do. He noticed that she did not run after a younger man, rich or poor and showed loyalty to her family. Everyone in the town knew that she was an honorable woman. He said that he had someone who was suitable for her closely related to her than he was. In other words, someone who he thought would be a better match for Ruth. Ch. 4 v 4-6 , man refused to redeem the land because he felt like marrying Ruth would endanger his own estate-
