This could be a discouraging verse;
the gate is narrow, the way is hard, few find it.
There is encouragement though;
we do not walk alone, we are given written instruction, nothing is hidden.
We can see clearly if we put aside preconceived notions of what it should look like.
Is it (or was it) difficult for you to see the gate?
What is keeping you (or kept you) from seeing clearly?
Blessings this day of grace,
