But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
– Matthew 7:14
During the depression, the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge provided many well-paying jobs. Since unemployment was high, desperate men claimed to be experienced in construction just to get the jobs. Due to the wet, slippery conditions, bridge builders expected many fatalities on the job. Joseph Strauss saved many lives when he designed a safety net that was suspended beneath the bridge. With the net ten feet wider and fifteen feet longer than the bridge surface, workers were able to safely increase their work production. Today, an average of forty-one million commuters cross the bridge yearly.
As we observe many people traveling different directions each day, it makes one wonder where each separate person is headed. After reading todays bible verse, how many of our fellow travelers have accepted Jesus as their Savior? How many of these bustling lives have taken time in their day for the Lord? Look around your busied world and ask the Lord to expand your vision. Jesus is the bridge that transports us from a life of self-seeking to one of God-seeking, and, ultimately, completes the path to everlasting life. The entrance fee has been paid and the safety net secured. He will catch you when you fall; however, it is a one-way bridge with a different catch. It contains a wonderful promise from the bridge builder, Jesus. He said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
