13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she became his wife, and he went in to her. And the Lord enabled her to conceive, and she gave birth to a son. 14 Then the women said to Naomi, “Blessed is the Lord who has not left you without a redeemer today, and may his name become famous in Israel. 15 May he also be to you a restorer of life and a sustainer of your old age; for your daughter-in-law, who loves you and is better to you than seven sons, has given birth to him.”

16 Then Naomi took the child and laid him in her lap, and became his nurse. 17 The neighbor women gave him a name, saying, “A son has been born to Naomi!” So they named him Obed. He is the father of Jesse, the father of David.

Boaz and Ruth made a public commitment and were properly married before their sexual union. The context of sexual relations is to always take place within married love. To do otherwise is outside of God’s will and plan for your life. Sexual intimacy must include emotional and spiritual intimacy to be complete and blessed of God. We walk by faith and not by sight. Are you trusting God with your life?
