it costs everything
You don’t know the cost ahead of time.
Life is different from shopping. When we go to the mall or on to Amazon, we look at prices, we compare, and then we make a purchase.
In life, we don’t truly know what something costs. We make decisions out of faith, in hope, and from experiences.
When you submit your life to something or someone, you don’t know what the cost is.
Unless it’s everything.
And that’s a hard thing.
To lay down your life for something greater than yourself or for someone other than yourself.
But what is life, if it’s not something to be lived for the sake of another.
