10 Regardless of your past, or past experiences, the Grace of God can make a difference in your life!

11 And with that Grace, you can have a great marriage and a lasting love!

21 Ruth 3:2 And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.

22 THE THRESHING FLOOR A Place For Refining

23 THE THRESHING FLOOR Boaz would be winnowing barley on the threshing floor in the evening A Place For Refining

24 THE THRESHING FLOOR The threshing floor was usually located on an elevated, exposed site so the breeze could help in the winnowing process

25 THE THRESHING FLOOR The westerly winds in Israel are a lot like the winds in southwest Florida. They begin to blow in the afternoon, and continue through sunset

26 THE THRESHING FLOOR The grain was separated from the husks by animal drawn sledges being pulled across the grain, which was then thrown in the air with a wooden pitchfork

27 THE THRESHING FLOOR The breeze helped blow away the chaff, allowing the kernels of grain to drop to the threshing floor

28 THE THRESHING FLOOR The men would usually remain though the night to guard the grain remaining at the threshing floor

29 THE INSTRUCTIONS: Ruth 3:3-4 3 Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.

30 THE INSTRUCTIONS: Ruth 3:3-4 4 And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.

31 THE INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Wash Yourself 2. Anoint Yourself 3. Clothe Yourself 4. Go Down Yourself 5. Don’t Make Yourself Known 6. Be Aware Of Yourself 1. Wash Yourself 2. Anoint Yourself 3. Clothe Yourself 4. Go Down Yourself 5. Don’t Make Yourself Known 6. Be Aware Of Yourself

32 BE YOU, NOT SOMEBODY ELSE! BUT BE THE BEST YOU, YOU CAN BE!

33 The way you keep yourself, and the way you present yourself, matters!

34 Let Jesus Help You… Ephesians 5: Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Ephesians 5: Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, Wash Yourself

35 Let Jesus Help You… Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Anoint Yourself

36 Let Jesus Help You… 1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. Anoint Yourself

42 HAVE A TEACHABLE AND WILLING SPIRIT

43 This is HUGE in a relationship!

44 The opposite is a stubborn, rebellious spirit!

45 This is absolutely DESTRUCTIVE in our relationship!

46 Ruth 3:7-8 7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down. 8 And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.

47 BE HUMBLE AND PATIENT!

57 Proverbs 31:23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

58 Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

59 Two Things About Integrity & Virtue 1. DO THE RIGHT THING! Don’t take advantage of someone… Especially the one you love! 2. DO THE BEST THING!

Boaz…...Assured Her That She Would Be Taken Care Of

66 Ruth 3: And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor. Boaz…...Didn’t Embarrass Her

69 SPEAK GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE ONE YOU LOVE!

70 Ruth 3:16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.

71 She told Naomi all the man had done to her!

72 Ruth 3:17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.

73 She told Naomi: “He gave me 20 days provisions”

74 She told Naomi: “He told me not to go home to my mother-in-law empty handed”

75 Ruth 3:18 Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.

76 KEEP HOPE ALIVE AND NEVER GIVE UP!

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
