In this kinsman redeemers mind were the strong bonds of loyalty to his family. If he died and only had one child by Ruth, he did not want all of his earthly possessions to go to Naomi's family as the redeemer price. All this man could see were the things. The tangible elements that are passed from generation to generation. Boaz had a different perspective. Boaz looked at the person, not the possessions. Boaz was willing to risk things to help a woman. Boaz may have had more at risk than kinsman redeemer number one, but because he put his focus on people and not things, God blessed him. Kinsman redeemer gave up so much by not taking Ruth as his bride. We don't even know his name, just the fact that he turned down the opportunity to be in the line of the Messiah.
What blessings are things stopping you from? It's easy to loose our focus on those around us and to only care about things. But as soon as we do that, we are missing on so much more.
