Before Ruth was to come at the feet of Boaz, she had to make the proper preparations for that meeting. She was to anoint herself. Ruth was to put on some good smelling.
- Believer is to live a life that comes up before God like a sweet smelling incense (2 Cor 2:15).
- Anointing oil was also used to set things apart for particular services. Believer is to consecrate himself to God's service.
- Believer is also to separate himself from every evil attachment (2 Cor 6:17).
