Luke 14:25-33 Great crowds accompanied Jesus on his way and he turned and spoke to them. "If any man comes to me without hating his father, mother, wife, children, brothers, sisters, yes and his own life too, he cannot be my disciple."
"Anyone who does not carry his cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
"And indeed, which of you here, intending to build a tower, would not first sit down and work out the cost to see if he had enough to complete it?
"Otherwise, if he laid the foundation and then found himself unable to finish the work, the onlookers would all start making fun of him and saying, “Here is a man who started to build and was unable to finish.”
