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.”
You are holy and when you give yourself to others to do as they will with you, you are on the wide road to hell. What the world proclaims good, can profane your body and ruin your soul. The narrow road is harder and sometimes requires a balancing act, but the state of your soul depends on what you do. Look for the narrow road to the safety of Our Lord.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, you know I have chosen the wide road many times. As I learn to place my trust in you, I find that it gets easier to choose the narrow road. With the help of your Son, Jesus, I pray I will always stay on the narrow road. In His Holy Name I ask for this grace, Amen.
He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.
