The Lord Jesus is teaching about real life we should chase after unlike the trend of people around us.

What could we observe the way the Lord Jesus chose from the way He lived? See also Mk 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

What is apostle Paul confessing about the way he was going into the small/narrow gate? See also Gal 1:10

What could we learn about life from the young boy’s example? See also Jn 6:9-11 
“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” 
Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them. 
Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.

What is the Lord telling you about your own way of choosing the narrow road in life?

What do you want to do in response to His voice that you might experience real life?
