Matthew 7:13-14 KJV
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
In life, we have choices to make. Usually one way is easy and the other more difficult. Most people will choose the easy way; however, that is often the least wise way as well. The best way is often more difficult, but it will lead to greater rewards. We must not just follow the crowd (wide gate), but choose the right way (narrow gate).
I have always wondered if Robert Frost had this scripture in mind when he penned, The Road Not Taken.
