How many crises would be avoided if we chose the narrow way?
Matthew 7:12 “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that sums up the teaching of the Torah and the Prophets.
13 “Go in through the narrow gate; for the gate that leads to destruction is wide and the road broad, and many travel it; 14 but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

I knew when my beloved related to me something of what he heard from Dr. David Jeremiah earlier this morning that I would have to write about it today.
How many crises in our world would be avoided if we chose the narrow road?
How many women would avoid a crises pregnancy? How many people would avoid contracting a STD if the narrow way was their choice? How many adulterous affairs would be circumvented if people would choose the narrow way? How many rapes, murders, thefts, and the lists could go on and on would not occur if people traveled the narrow road?
Millions, even billions, of dollars are spent each year to deal with the consequences of folks’ refusal to choose the narrow way. How foolish is it for the powers that be to strategically, step by step, remove from the public arena the very teaching, if accepted, could reduce government spending AND deter millions of lives from being decimated on the Wide Road? As the movie GOD’s Not Dead spoke so well we do not want to FORCE you to take the Narrow Road, we just want the opportunity to discuss your options with you. If you give a good listen, you might be pleasantly surprised. 🙂
ABBA, it is my prayer that in Your grace and mercy You will grant grace and space for America’s repentance. It is my prayer that You will bring a holy boldness to Your Church to extravagantly love people as we look to You and rely on You HOLY SPIRIT for opportunities, resources and courage to teach Your Word to every soul who will listen.
Good, good, good, good words today. I chose the wide path far too often in my life and paid dearly for it. I knew better, but pride told me I could do what I wanted. Bad choices lead to unpleasant consequences.
Me too, Leah, the consequences nearly killed me but now are only memories that serve me well, by bringing on praise to Him who delivered me! Thank you my Friend!
