“7 With her two daughters-in-law she left the place where she had been living and set out on the road that would take them back to the land of Judah.”
Naomi is going home. It’s been a journey. But she’s returning to Judah.
She’s going home.
But things won’t be the way they were. Her life has changed. Her world has changed.
In all the vicissitudes of life. In all our journeys from Judah to Moab and back. With all the treasures and wounds we’ve acquired along the way. What is home. What does it mean to long for return.
Remember that as Christians, we step lightly here. Our true home is the hope of heaven. Paul writes, “20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20).
