The Narrow Gate, Matt. 7: 13-14 (Archive 9/15/13)

Do not always “help” nor ever feel sorry for others! How do you enter the narrow gate? Take the ego pain without reaching for anything.

BOND Archive Sunday Service, September 15, 2013: One man shares a story of bringing trouble on himself by “helping” a neighbor with his swimming pool in the wrong way. Another man admits to feeling sorry for a servant class in Thailand whom he heard about, where his wife spent time working. He related to them because of slavery in America. But the “poor” people can have a better attitude and be happier than the “rich.” Have a good attitude.

Jesse then reads Matthew 7: 13-14, in which Jesus says, “Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” People talk about what it means. (Amid the conversation, Jesse talks with a newly homeless man on drugs who resents his parents’ shaming him.) Know and admit that you don’t know! To enter, totally surrender — don’t hold onto anything. Relax in the inner pain without reaching out to anything.
