Matthew 7:13-14

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be
which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

A path seperates at the base of a tree, giving two distinct and seperate directions to follow.  A choice...

At The Tree

When you stand at the tree
And before you, you see
Two choices
And two voices
That pine

Will you stay on the trail
That you see cannot fail
Or the one
Where The Son
Does not shine?

Does the pleasure you seek
Make you soft, Make you week
So your feet
Hit the street
Of the lost

Oh look up to that tree
On it’s branches you’ll see
Christ has borne
All the scorn
On The cross

If you selfishly choose
The broad way, you will lose
All that Christ
Gave His life
To Ransom

But the narrow and straight
Is where Heaven awaits
And where He
On that tree
Bids you “come”
