It wasn’t a leap year, but it was a leap of faith. As Ruth casts herself at the feet of Boaz and asks him to cover her with his blanket, she is asking for his commitment to cover her with his provision and protection. In honoring her request, Boaz foreshadows Jesus, our Kinsman-Redeemer. When we cast ourselves at the feet of Christ, Jesus covers us with the blood of His covenant. He provides. He protects. He calls us His own and makes us His Bride.
