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?
