Good morning.


The choice of which route to take before setting of in our cars is important.


When planning our holiday route, it is clear that taking the wider and easy route is the popular choice. Or is it the scenic route? If we can avoid as many potential obstacles in the road as possible, we believe our journey will be more pleasurable and hence more fulfilling.


When heading off to and from work, knowing where the traffic lights are is an important factor to take into account, especially with all the loadshedding at the moment.


Jesus, too, spoke of choosing the right route. “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." (Matthew 7:13‭-‬14)


We all would like to take the easy, comfortable route. However, Jesus reminds us that when we take this less popular route, where we need to step out in faith and squeeze through the uncomfortable tightness of the narrow gate, our feet are then placed on the pathway to eternal life.


The choices we make have eternal significance. So as we enjoy a time to sit back and relax this weekend, take a moment to ponder about life's choices that lie ahead of us.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
