The cost of following Jesus is that we "hate" our family and even our own life, preferring nothing to Christ. We can't have one foot on the dock and one foot in the boat and expect to be able to get underway with Jesus. Jesus calls us to develop and undivided heart which then allows us to be better lovers.
