Our back gate is iron, similar in appearance to a pool safety fence with a 20 cm gap underneath. The other day I saw a family of ducks come under the gate into our backyard to have some breakfast. There was a mother and father and eight ducklings.
It was very cute but there was a sad bit as well, two ducklings were stuck outside as they hadn’t seen how the others got in. They waited outside until the rest of the family went back out.
It made me think about the way some people are searching but just can’t see that Jesus is not only the way but that he is always open to us. No need to limbo under or pole vault over – we can walk straight on through.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for your words where you have told us that you are the gate and that all who enter through you will be saved.
