The Narrow Path

July 13th, 2012by Bill Tonnis

Matthew 7:14

“How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”

Freedom is wonderful…but sometimes it causes us to be shackled in chains. With so many choices it can lead to “egos gone wild.” It’s a veritable smorgasbord of options! But no amount of power, prestige or possessions will be enough to satisfy that yearning for more. What we are all really trying to do is fill a hole in our hearts that was placed there by our Maker…a hole that only God can fill.  What is it that gives you life? What is it that truly gives you inner joy and peace? What are the many things that you need to say “no” to…so you can say “yes” to the one thing that God wants for you? Listen to God’s voice in your heart and take that narrow path to freedom. On the road less traveled…you will find God and in the process discover yourself.
