As both Naomi and Ruth remain alone, they propose a survival strategy for their future. At the climax of the story, Ruth risk her life by attempting a dangerous plan. She sneaks into Boaz’s room, uncovers his “feet”, and asks him to spread his cloak over her. She throws all of herself into this without knowing the outcome. Love is always risky. Will it be reciprocated? Boaz responds with an outpouring of acceptance, praise, and assurance for Ruth and her future.
