How to return to there from here, part 5
Ruth 1: 6-14
V8-9 “Then Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, “Go back, each of you, to your mother’s home. May the LORD show kindness to you, as you have shown to your dead and to me.

5. Mistakes will be made
Naomi did not want to do to her daughters in law what Elimelech had done to her by taking them away from where they were. Its not enough to simply forget your past, we must learn from it.
In learning from our mistakes we will see that some of them turned out to be the best thing that may have ever happened to us. Elimelechs mistake took Naomi to Moab and to receiving Ruth into her life.
