CHOOSING THE RIGHT PATH
THE BIBLE SAYS:
YOU can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to helll is broad, and it’s gate is wide for the many which choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.

I encourage each of you today not to take the path that seems easy or the most popular, but the road not taken , even if it presents difficulties.
Jesus encourages us to think about how we make decisions.
We can do what seems popular and go along with the crowd.But it can lead us away from God’s desires for what is best for us.
In the end…..it really doesn’t matter what people think.
The key is being certain that God is pleased.
