You’ve heard these “travel hints” found in today's Gospel for the discipleship road before: Enter by the narrow gate; be prepared for the Master’s coming; be open and flexible. Why? Because the Kingdom of God will include unexpected challenges.
The difference between courage and brashness is wisdom. Courage does not mean a lack of fear. Courage is moving forward despite fear. Christian courage means trusting that the Lord is with you even in times of trouble.
