Norman Rockwell: The Golden Rule

Norman Rockwell: The Golden Rule

Matthew 7:12-14

Entering the Gate

Do unto others whatever you would have them do unto you.  This is the law and the prophets.  Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

These verses are quoted by so many yet truly heard by so few. The words are often read and studied yet seldom fully heard.

God says: I speak often to each of you as I call you to the Narrow Way my son walks with you; I send these words of wisdom to you on the wing  and in the heart of my Sacred Spirit. I long to have each of you beside me forever; I love to know that you are as aware of me as I am of you. Trust me in this saying that you read and hear today. Spend time with these verses until they seep into your bones. Spend time with me until you feel the golden Word live in you. 

This Golden Rule is perhaps the most cited and the most ignored in human history. This week as we near the season of Advent when we celebrate Christ’s coming to live among us, let us take time to consider the paradox of the Narrow Gate that always stands before us.
