They say “you can’t have it all”. In fact, you can have it all, but you will end up with much less of what you want. Having it “all” assumes that the “all” consists of only the things that you want or desire. The reality is that when we seek things that are not the things that God desires for us, we will end up with those things and all of the negative baggage that comes with it. God creates a narrow gate not to prevent us from good things but in order to protect us from the bad things that we are unable to protect ourselves from.
Lord, your narrow gate is not intolerant or “selective” or an offense to diversity but a strategic plan to help us to experience the fullness that You have for us.
