“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” – Viktor Frankl
(Gospel Text: Mt 7:6, 12-14)
Jesus said to his disciples:
"Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.
"Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.
This is the Law and the Prophets.
"Enter through the narrow gate;
for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction,
and those who enter through it are many.
How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life.
And those who find it are few."
To make the right decisions in life, we must always ask the right questions. I think we would all agree with that statement.
If you saw someone driving on a road which abruptly ended at a cliff, if you saw car after car go over the cliff, if you heard the people in these cars screaming on the way to their deaths — would you love enough to try to stop the cars driving on that road?
You would think mankind would consistently “choose a gate” based on what's behind it rather than on how easy it is to get through it.
"Enter through the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few." (Mt 7:13-14) But with the light of the Spirit of Christ shining before us, we will find the narrow gate. Once we go through it, we are on the way to eternal life .
