Luke 14.25-33

This coming Sunday we will be focusing on Luke 14.25-33. This is oftentimes called "The Cost of Discipleship". One thing that has really stuck out to me are these phrases: in verse 28 it says "sit down and estimate the cost", and verse 31 says "sit down first and consider". There is something to be said about sitting, estimating, and considering. Are we taking the time to reflect in our daily lives? Are we actually looking at the grand perspective and asking what God would have us do? Or are we just doing things by impulse, and never considering to be intentional with using the time that God has given us? I think that these verses could easily be called "Counting the Cost of Discipleship". How do you count the cost?
