Counting the Cost
By Rick Boxx
April 20, 2011

Lusting for cash, and his attractive schoolteacher, Kevin Arnold, the star of “Wonder Years” agrees to paint the teacher’s house, even though he had no experience.

He compounded his problems by hiring the wrong people, paying them in advance, and seriously underestimating his costs. The end result was a job that lingered for weeks, lost him $200, and provided a memorable lesson.

Jesus said in Luke 14:28-29, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him.”

If you’re beginning a new project, don’t forget the importance of counting the cost.
