The Narrow Path is narrow because there is only one way, Jesus.
Follow Him and it leads to Heaven.
Look at the alternatives they all come down to works. Make sure to do this, do that, follow this, follow that. And if you are good enough you may get into paradise.
Confusion, anxiety, depression and overall pain come on this path.
That path may seem broad with more opportunity but in reality that path is on shaky ground filled with bumps, holes, entrapments and along the way many, many snakes.
But God offers the narrow path, the straight path right to Him. Just follow the Lord.
If you went hiking and there were two paths one was narrow and led straight to where you were going and the other was filled with rough terrain where you had to find your way all on your own which would you chose?
Some may decide to take the rough road as they see it as a challenge. But when they arrive to their destination, dirty, tired, hurt which path do you think they will take back?
If they chose to go the same way back it would be quite foolish.
Unfortunately many take that path their whole lives and still believe it is easier.
But we know the truth, we know the way and we know the life.
And we will come to the Father through Him.
Have a Blessed Week,
