What does it mean to enter the narrow gate?

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. — Matthew 7:13-14

We can enter this life through “the wide gate”, play god ourselves and live for our own selfish interests. It is a path filled with hollow, fleeting rewards, that leads to destruction. Or we can choose the narrow gate that leads upward to heaven. It is a steep climb and a rough road, but as we struggle, we find that Someone is walking beside us! Which gate have you chosen??

Prayer. Heavenly Father I thank you and I pray you lead me to the narrow gate and when I get there I choose that path that leads to a full and peaceful life. In Jesus Name Amen.
