Luke 14: 25- 34 N.E.T. Translation (link)
25 Now large crowds were accompanying Jesus,[cg] and turning to them he said,
26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate[ch] his own father and mother, and wife and children, and brothers and sisters, and even his own life,[ci] he cannot be my disciple.
27 Whoever does not carry his own cross[cj] and follow[ck] me cannot be my disciple.
28 For which of you, wanting to build a tower, doesn’t sit down[cl] first and compute the cost[cm] to see if he has enough money to complete it? 29 Otherwise,[cn] when he has laid[co]
a foundation and is not able to finish the tower,[cp] all who see it[cq] will begin to make fun of[cr] him. 30 They will say,[cs] ‘This man[ct] began to build and was not able to finish!’[cu]
31 Or what king, going out to confront another king in battle, will not sit down[cv] first and determine whether he is able with 10,000 to oppose[cw] the one coming against him with 20,000?
32 If he cannot succeed,[cx] he will send a representative[cy] while the other is still a long way off and ask for terms of peace.[cz] 33 In the same way therefore not one of you can be my disciple if he does not renounce all his own possessions.[da]
34 “Salt[db] is good, but if salt loses its flavor,[dc] how can its flavor be restored? 35 It is of no value[dd] for the soil or for the manure pile; it is to be thrown out.[de] The one who has ears to hear had better listen!”[df]
