Jesus Teaching: Becoming Jesus Disciple

If any one comes to me without hating his father and mother Wife and children Brothers and sisters Even his own life, he cannot be my disciple Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion Otherwise After laying the foundation and Finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him and say This one began to build but did Not have the resources to finish What king marching into battle would not first sit down Decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops But if not While he is still far away He will send a delegation to ask for peace terms In the same way Everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple [LK 14:26-33]
