Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Point the Way

on November 13, 2022

Matthew 7:14- “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Just last week, I heard another horrific story about young people who were trapped inside a venue that somehow caught on fire. In the past, I remember people being trampled when trying to escape from a gunman at a sporting event.

In each of these cases, patrons became disoriented or were pushed along by the throng and couldn’t find their way to the exit. In some cases, the exits weren’t clearly marked. In others, they proved to be much too narrow for the large crowd to get through safely and quickly.

I immediately thought of the scripture in Matthew 7. Each time I read it, I think how said it is that people failed to take the narrow road to safety and eternal life. My prayer is that today we would gently point others toward the way Home.
