In these last two portions of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus takes us to the point of decision by presenting a series of choices. We can choose the more difficult, less traveled path of sacrifice and authenticity, or we can choose the easier, more traveled path of selfishness and pretense. The most important decision in life is one we must make every day: Will I live for Him or will I live for myself? In the words of Robert Frost,
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
