The Other Side of Experience

In living your life, do you tend to walk more on the broad road or the narrow road? What makes the broad road most tempting for you? What makes the narrow road difficult? Rewarding? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1336).

The broad road is one of self-aggrandizement and self-preservation. The narrow road to righteousness is one of self-sacrifice, forgiveness, and goodwill. From this description it can be anticipated that virtually all humans have difficulty traveling the narrow road, for the broad road speaks directly to several basic psychological needs. Yet a fuller conception of man takes into consideration the need for long-term joy and happiness only fathomable paradoxically through an active and restless charity. This cultivates the fruit of the Spirit concurrently with myriad sacrificial reflexes which together bestow an innocence born only of extensive experience.
