The Cost Of Discipleship

26 If any man comes to me, and does not regard as inferior his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and besides his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross, and come behind me, cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you wanting to build a tower, does not, having first sat down, count the cost whether he has the things for completion?
