In Matthew 7:14 Jesus said the way is narrow. It’s a way that isn’t easy and it takes a person who selflessly serves to travel it. It truly is a way that goes against the flow of the community I, and you, live in. I’d like to share something I read the other day with you:
“Most of the messages we receive are about how to make life easier. The call of Jesus goes the other direction: it’s about making our lives more difficult. It is going out of our way to be more generous and disciplined and loving and free. It is refusing to escape and become numb to and check out of this broken, fractured world.”
The journey we are on does have a cost and requires all we have. I encourage you to think on the words above and perhaps in a day or so share your thoughts of what the words are saying to you by leaving a comment.
