“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
— Jesus, the Christ
You, we, are obeying the Law and the Prophets (all that God commands) when we simply evaluate what we do. Is what I am doing good for the person I am doing it to? Is it loving and kind. Is it what he expects? Is it good for him?
If everyone lived in community with others with just those thoughts, imagine what a different place the world would be! There would be no terror. There would be no murder, no stealing, no rape and no slavery. The earth would be an amazing place!
Can you imagine a terrorist asking–‘I wonder how these people are going to feel when I run over their bodies?’ Or, a sharp shooter–‘Is it right to kill police who are protecting other people?’ Or, a policeman–‘Why am I shooting a man with his hands up?’
The problem is, most of the world does not know that quote nor do they no who said it nor do they understand the implications of it!
Every person in the whole wide world may be judged on these few words by the Master. Why? Because they contain the essence of the whole of the Law and Prophets.
The Master went on to say: “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
The narrow gate seems more appealing the older I get. Why pursue “wide” and “easy?”

Lynn had a utopian existence in of all places Alpine, Utah.
That all began to change one day when she received a phone call from her son Micah.
