Bible: Luke 14:25-28

Counting the Cost

14:25 Now large crowds 1  were accompanying Jesus, 2  and turning to them he said, 14:26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate 3  his own father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, and even his own life, 4  he cannot be my disciple. 14:27 Whoever does not carry his own cross 5  and follow 6  me cannot be my disciple. 14:28 For which of you, wanting to build a tower, doesn’t sit down 7  first and compute the cost 8  to see if he has enough money to complete it?
