The Narrow Way


     'The Way is narrow that leads to Life.'  We are all born onto the broad road of life but it will be few who choose the narrow path.  ''Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.''  Matthew 7;13-14
      I think the caption above depicts a few things about the narrow path.  Although some may conclude that it's boundaries are confining, it instead provides a sheltering protection from the world.  It is easy to follow the crowd but it takes true strength to stand alone.  To turn your back on the chosen path for you, takes a decision and effort on your part.  No one can walk or choose the road for you.
     Which road have you taken?  Are you headed for destruction or to eternal life?  Yes sometimes our journey has involved an exit ramp or two, but the U-turn involved is often stressful as we try to get back on the right and narrow road.  Look ahead and don't get distracted.
