Ruth 1:6 “Then she arose with her daughters in law, that she might return from the country of Moab: for she had heard in the country of Moab how that the LORD had visited his people in giving them bread.”

Ruth 1:7 “Wherefore she went forth out of the place where she was, and her two daughters in law with her; and they went on the way to return unto the land of Judah.”

One of the most difficult thing to do is to retrace our step when we go wrong. Every human have an element of pride in this direction that is why it is very difficult for us to say, “I am sorry”.

Those three words seem very simple but many men, women and even children find it very difficult to say. A wise man I respect so much once said, “It is only a fool that does not change his mind!”

You might not like what I’m about to say but the truth is that, we have all been foolish along this line at one time or the other. The painful thing is that many people remain perpetually foolish. As a pastor I’ve met many people who knew glaringly that they were wrong but still refused to apologize and retrace their steps.

I want to believe that after the death of her husband, Naomi made efforts to return to Judah but her sons prevailed on her. They rather chose to stay back and get married in Moab against the ordinance of God.

Finally, after she had lost everything, she decided to return back to Judah. That brings to mind the story of the prodigal son. He also lost everything then decided to return:

Luke 15:17 “And when he came to himself, he said How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare and I perish with hunger!”

Luke 15:18 “I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,”

To be continued…
