Jesus began to summarize God’s message, emphasizing that God requires us to make a choice, God requires our response (52):
Do for other people what you would like them to do for you. (Think about it . . .)
This is the central meaning of the law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets.
Heaven can only be entered by the narrow gate.
The gate to hell is wide open, and the path to hell is easy, and many people take that path.
But the gate to heaven is narrow, and the path to heaven is hard, and very few people take that path.
(52) Matthew 7:12-14
