    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

Now behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said to the reapers, "The LORD [be] with you!" And they answered him, "The LORD bless you!" Ruth 2:4

When you’re first introduced to Boaz, a key character in the beautiful story of redemption that is the book of Ruth, you get a pretty good idea of what kind of man he is. After he greets his workers with a hearty “The Lord be with you!” they respond with an equally enthusiastic “The Lord bless you!”

These words give you a great first impression of Boaz, don’t they? Right away, you know that Boaz is a godly man who apparently treats his servants with kindness and compassion, and you know they know him as a man who loves God and others.

As you make your way through Ruth’s story, you find that your first impressions of Boaz are well-founded. He indeed is a man who loves God and cares for the well-being of those who enter his sphere of influence.

Someone has rightly observed that you have only one chance to make a first impression. What kind of first impression do your words and actions make on those you meet? Do you think people who encounter you know right away that you’re a man who loves God and loves other people—no matter their position in life—and wants to bless them?

That’s a first impression any follower of Jesus should want to make on everyone he meets.
