Naomi decided to return back home after years away. Yet the Spirit seems to imply that there is something spiritual about her return as well, something we call “repentance.” But surprisingly, her sister-in-law chose to go with her which implies a significant step of repentance and faith on her part. And for her as a Gentile to make that decision is even more intriguing when you consider that her only source of information about God is her mother-in-law. Would someone follow Christ based on your testimony, even when your world falls apart?
