Thought for the day

"When you are born, you are very close to the heart of God. As you grow older, some of you rebel against the call to holiness. Some of you turn from the narrow path and get on the broad path and enjoy it. The broad path becomes familiar. Even if you are plagued with drug addiction or uncontrolled anger, even if the bottom is dropping out, even if everything is messed up, even if life has no real meaning, people will stay with the familiar.

The broad path offers answers to these predicaments: The broad path has plenty of drugs to keep you going. The broad path enables uncontrolled anger. When the bottom is dropping out, the broad path will be there to keep pushing you down a little further. If everything is messed up, the broad path will generate more of the same. If life has no meaning, the broad path will support that kind of thinking.

Whatever holds you back from having a pure and beautiful existence; it can be found readily available on the broad path. If you are looking for someone to agree with you when you are living a life without meaning, you can count on those on the broad path. But, not one day goes by, that God doesn't call out to everyone on the broad path, to turn around and go the other way. Jesus entreats you to come and follow Him and enjoy the blessings of the good life.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17 "
