Redemption of Ruth
Closest of kin to redeem Ruth did not find any personal gain. By refusing to redeem Ruth, he remained nameless in history but Boaz by showing kindness to Ruth was added into the genealogy of Jesus Christ which Boaz was unaware of at the redemption.
People are willing to die for something of value but Jesus died for us while we were rebellious. Romans 5:8
