Counting the cost before building will not save it, if the quality of materials used to arrive at that cost are substandard.
Completion is not as important as Consolidation.
Every life is a Building.
The choices we make are like building materials. Anger, Wickedness, Pornography, Lust, Lies, Cheating, Backbiting, Gossiping, Revenge etc. are inferior materials.
Spirituality, Purity, Sincerity, Honesty, Integrity etc. are quality materials.
The building with inferior materials may look fine without the storm. But only the building with quality materials can withstand the storm.
What are building with?
Life is all about Building Materials...
