A person asked Jesus this question, “Teacher, will only a few be saved?” Jesus answered, “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.”
Jesus’ narrow door is a demanding ethic. His way calls us to alleviate our fears by giving alms, to handle conflict by turning the other cheek, to carry people’s burdens an extra mile, to love even our enemies. It calls us to forgive other’s debts and invest ourselves and our wealth in providing a leg up for those our economy leaves behind and who have no hope of repaying us.
What more is Jesus asking of you in this gospel? What door do you want to open or shut?
