The Narrow but True Path
Our friend Pat Maxwell recently sent us these amazing photos. When I saw them, many of the verses below came to my mind.
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Matthew 7:13-14).
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6).
“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).
“You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip” (Psalm 18:36).
“Lead me in the path of your commandments, for I delight in it” (Psalm 119:35).
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).
“Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil” (Proverbs 4:14).
“For a man’s ways are before the eyes of the LORD, and he ponders all his paths” (Proverbs 5:21).
“In the path of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death” (Proverbs 12:28).
“The path of life leads upward for the prudent, that he may turn away from Sheol beneath” (Proverbs 15:24).
“One who wanders from the way of good sense will rest in the assembly of the dead” (Proverbs 21:16).
“And I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I do, and I do not forsake them” (Isaiah 42:16).
