Count the Cost of Discipleship
Matthew 8:18-22 – Jesus is not being cruel to the three men who he interacts
The reason why following Jesus makes perfect sense in this context is He is the King of Kings. He is God who loves us and will take care of us, including answering each of the questions the men raise in this passage. Jesus is worthy of every moment of our lives. He wants us to see this and not waste our time following Him out of any other motivation.
