THE NARROW GATE THAT LEADS TO LIFE
 
Good choices always help us move towards the goal of loving our heavenly Father and obeying/doing His will.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's Gospel acclamation: I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life (Jn 8:12).
 
Jesus uses an image in Matthew's Gospel which is common in the Old Testament: choosing between two divergent ways or paths - the way that leads to fulfillment and life versus the way that leads to unhappiness and even destruction in our lives. The Book of Psalms begins with an image of a person who has chosen to follow the way of those who are wise and obedient to God's word and who refuse to follow the way of those who think and act contrary to God's ways. Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, not sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night (Ps 1:1-2). When a path diverges, such fork in the road, each way leads to a different destination. This is especially true when we encounter a crossroad of life and we may make a choice that will significantly effect how we live our lives. Good choices always help us move towards the goal of loving our heavenly Father and obeying/doing His will.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Going by the narrow way by taking the right path leads us to the life to which God has called each one of us. Then God's love and wisdom rule our hearts, so that we can trust in Him for His guidance and grace to follow the path of love and holiness which bring us life!
