Why a wheat stalk?
The Old Testament book of Ruth tells the story of Ruth and her mother in law Naomi who were both left as widows in a foreign land. They moved back to Israel and because of a provision in the Israelite Law, Ruth was able to glean wheat on the edges of a nearby field that was left for the poor. She was then noticed by the landowner, Boaz, and after seeing her great dedication to provide for her mother-in-law, and her faithfulness, and love for Naomi, Boaz made Ruth his wife.
