Wide Open Spaces

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matt 7:13-14
This scripture always makes me think about the places that I go and the things that I do. I often want the path of least resistance and that would mean that I would opt for the wider opening. I like wide open spaces. It appears that there will always be much more distractions, opportunities and activity around things that may be harmful. The key is to get our vision focused on the single answer to life's issues and troubles: Jesus. There are opportunities and activities in serving Him also but when we focus on Him, we just don't get swayed by all of the other stuff.
Today, rub your eyes and take another good look at the things in front of you. Seek first His kingdom and His way of doing things(life) and everything else will come to you:)
