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. Matthew 7:13-14 and also 3 Nephi 27:33
*The spelling of "strait" has significance. The dictionary says it means narrow, righteous, strict, and difficult.
"Gate" is baptism, and "the way" refers to following the teachings of the gospel by keeping the commandments.
Today, before the reflections on this scripture, I first want to send everyone a greeting, "Eh up me duck!" Thanks to all of you who check in on the blog to see what we've been up to.
|The sweet person who gave us this is the first one who called us "duck." It basically means, "Hello, dear friend," or "Hello, mate, (everything going good?" or . . . "Urarite?" (are you all right?)|
|Going up the straight, narrow and muddy path|
|This one seems to be leading down into the street|
