We are told in Matthew 7:12-14 to, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” I think that sometimes in our pursuit to love others we make the mistake of trying to broaden the path to be more accepting and perhaps to include or embrace or encompass more but true love would say, “Hey my friend here is the narrow path, you don’t want to stray off because that broad path that may be enticing you will only lead to destruction”. Sometimes compromise can be the very tool the enemy uses to open the door to deception that leads to destruction. Let’s love one another by encouraging each other to keep our feet on the path that Jesus designed for us so that we are enabled to walk in His fullness and love not the deceptive love of this world that encourages us to do what ever feels good or looks good.
True love does not try to broaden the path but lets you know when you are straying off the chosen path.
Trying to broaden what God calls narrow will only lead to deception.
