“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it” (Matthew 7:13).

The way of Jesus is one person wide. In this metaphor, Jesus reminds us to look to Him alone. So many are scrambling to find meaning and purpose when we have it right before us. The author of all life will take our hand and lead us. Why do you try to find purpose in lesser things? This does not mean you cannot enjoy the life Jesus has given you, but it does mean living as the Lord leads.

I have feared walking so closely with You Lord because I do not want my joy hampered. But I find the closer I walk with You, the more I see, experience, know, and above all else, find joy. I need to learn from You how life is meant to be lived. Guide me in the way of everlasting life and help me to live that life. Many do go the way of unthinking habits. You lead me in the way of truth and joy.

Lord Jesus, open my eyes to see and my ears to hear the truth that You have spoken from the beginning. Guide me now and always so that I may look to You and walk the path that You have set before me. May I now and always be led in Your goodness and mercy to know that You have given me the words of eternal life and that I need not look to any other place. Help me to always look to You for all things. Amen.
