Have you ever driven on a narrow road? Its not easy at all, your always afraid your going to go into the other lane or they will cross over to you. You might even go off road. Maybe your walking a narrow path in the woods,and you find it hard because of all the bushes and twigs coming at you. I remember as a kid playing in the pool, and we would play the game of swimming under one another,between each others legs. That was not as easy as it seemed. Sometimes you just couldn't get through,especially if they tried to close their legs and grab you. There are narrow paths to take, they seem longer and harder than the wide ones. The wide ones are easy. You may get there a little faster,but is it always the best way? In Matthew 7:13-14 it tells us this; "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." It takes faith to do the right thing, it also takes faith to take the narrow path. In life we sometimes have to go in the other direction as our friends, they seem to want to take the wide road,it seems easy and fun,but we know from studying God's word,it isn't the right road. The narrow path seems hard,but as my father in law would say,"The easy way is not always the correct way or the best,just because its easy."God is not going to bless us with all He has unless we turn from our wicked ways,leave our sins behind, and follow Him. To do that we must follow that narrow path, that path protects us, provides for us, and leads us straight to Him. If we ever get off that path, we can find our way back.All we have to do is stop for directions, look inside God's book of life, and He will guide us back to where we need to be.
