Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. (Matthew 5:42 ESV)
Is this our mentality? Think about your own mindset…
We ask so much of Jesus, we desire to walk with Him but many desire only His hands and what He has to give and not necessarily His face. If His beauty is only glimpsed but once, to be caught in His gaze, thats all a person really needs. The road gets long, but if we ask to walk with Him, we are never alone. Seek Him in the wilderness, that is where He can be found. He will whisper and speak to your hear tif you will be still and listen.
The wide gate is well traveled, it is beautiful but the end of the road is destruction.
Go against the stream, against the grain, find yourself in the very place the angels fear to tread, find yourself standing before the throne of The Almighty. He is faithful and His word is truth! Find yourself not seeking things that will burn up and rust away.
We will lay our crowns before Jesus some day, and in the mean time as we occupy this Earth, make a decision to sow your tears and invest into others that might consider the wide gate. Lift them up bring them onto the path of the narrow way. This is where your treasure can be found.
What good does your riches profit you if they are hidden away for safe keeping? Will God not bring you all you need if you are willing to make space for it?
But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:14
