The unprepared builder (Luke 14:28-30) | back

 28For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Don't begin to build a building without first getting estimates to see if you have enough money to complete the construction.

 29Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him. Otherwise you may only be able to finish the foundation before you run out of funds and everyone will laugh.

 30Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. They will say, that man over there started that building, but ran out of cash before it was completed. Always take a good look at the work involved, consequences and cost, before you commit to a certain project.
