The Narrow And Wide Gates
"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
Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter it. And small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to the kingdom of God and only a few find it. People are blinded by the pleasures of the world and blindly tread the path to destruction in pursuit of happiness and recognition. Like brilliant baubles, these tempting allures of Satan have mesmerized men to follow the enchanting tune of the pied piper from hell. Surely, if we follow the dictates of those who are worldly, we will be missing the true path to the kingdom of God. How narrow and uneventful that path is. It is also littered with so many pebbles and stones that hinder those who would tread that path. Trials and temptations are on every step of the way. But for those who will persist in trudging that path and finishing the trail to the very end, a crown of glory awaits them from the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Theirs will be eternal bliss with the Lord forevermore.
