The Narrow Gate – Good News for June 22

22 06 2010

Matthew 7:6 and 12-14

Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.

“Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the Law and the Prophets.

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”

The Daily Path: In recent days I have come to understand more clearly that when I chose to follow Our Lord it also meant that I was choosing the cross. Yet in bearing this cross – for what are relatively just a few moments in this life on earth – I have the promise of an eternity with the Father. I accept this.

Faith in the Promise no matter what is thrown at me. One day at a time. One foot ahead of the other… on the way to the narrow gate.
