Discussion: the cost of discipleship

Getting Started

As we work every day and interact with people, we are forced to make decisions that are not always easy. In fact, many times we need to make decisions that are difficult and can have long-term ramifications. However, taking time to think about decisions when they are made and how far-reaching they can be to you and other people you work with or live with is an important aspect of adult life. Counting the cost is something we are not always good at, but there is always a cost for every decision. Christ calls us to count the cost and decide to follow him daily. At times this can be difficult and cause us to give up things and do things that are outside our comfort zone. After reading the Scripture, consider the meaning of the parable counting the cost.
