Matthew 7:14 (NASB) "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."Not everyone can do or even wants to! I remember the very first time I was asked to walk the rafters of the house we were building. The lead carpenter said that I needed to carry these sheets of plywood up to the men putting them down on the roof! Today's verse is a good one for remembering that coming to Christ has a small gate and a narrow way to get there and only a few will find it! The lead carpenter began to share the secret of walking these narrow boards and how to keep from falling off, he simple said "keep your eyes on the thin rafters and take it step by step! Great advice of not just walking rafters but also for finding our way to Christ. Keep our eyes upon Him and His Word, and take it step by step. Sure it may seem scary at first but once we get there, the path is so worth it! Be sure to pass along the advice just like the lead carpenter did to me!! peace, tom
