Sandal Collectors

In one of the most stunning moments recorded in the Bible, Boaz lives into his role as a kinsman redeemer and comes to the aid of Naomi and Ruth. He receives a sandal for the responsibility he has assumed, and the redemption they have received. Furthermore, the sandal represents in this moment the reality that God has been working behind the scenes to bring goodness and hope to Naomi and Ruth. Interestingly, God’s redemption for them looked a whole lot like a guy by the name of Boaz. What if God’s redemption for someone else looks a whole lot like you?
