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? (Luke 14:25-33)
Two messages emerge from Luke’s Gospel reading for today:
*Prepare! Don’t be caught unaware and unprepared. Think through the cost of eternal life. What will you need to do? How will you need to live your life? Go into it with eyes wide open. You don’t want to get into the “project” thinking it’s easy, only to find that it is difficult, challenging work.
*Finish the job! Don’t allow the work to get the better of you. Keep your eye on the prize. Sacrificial work brings you closer to God and that much closer to eternal life. The “cost” is worth it!
