Luke 14:25-33

2007-09-05MESSIAH SEEKING DISCIPLES: must like dinners out, long walks on the beach, donkey rides

BIBLE PASSAGE — Now large crowds were traveling with him; and he turned and said to them, “Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him, saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand? If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions. — Proper 18, Series C

    It is a counterpoint to Matthew 11:28-30.

    Is there a reason when I go to the comment page from the email, I get placed in a different commentary than what is up for the week? When I went to “Comment on this comic” in the email it took me to a Luke 5 cartoon

    His Peace be with you :)
