The parable "Cost of discipleship"
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have
Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish
, all that behold
begin to mock him,
Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
