Luke 14:25-33

The cost of discipleship is great. To help his listeners understand, Jesus uses two examples, a builder assessing a project and a king weighing the odds of battle. The decision to follow him must be approached with conscious deliberation to turn away from anyone or anything that stands in the way of full commitment to the cross.

To hate my family and renounce all my possessions are difficult concepts for me. I pray for the wisdom to understand what you ask and that the Spirit guides me to be who you call me to be.
