The narrow gate of life

To live according to the commandments1 of God- is a narrow gate.

To live according to the practices of the world; to live according to our natural inclinations2- is a wide gate.

1. Following God's commandments is a hard road- as it yields fruits (love, Joy, Peace and every goodness)  through patience and perseverance.
God's commandments inclines our heart to the 'kingdom of God'- to a life of Love; Peace; Eternal life.

2. Human nature looks forward to satisfaction and happiness, in only earthly things. It looks no further than the world. it is inclined towards destruction- as it is opposed to God's commandments.
