Tom Brady Counted the Cost Feat. Garret Barbush| EP. 104

“We need to be the best men of God that we can possibly be and be willing to pay the price.” // Garret Barbush

On EP. 104 we are talking about the greatest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady. ICYMI, Brady retired last week as not only the greatest quarterback of all-time, but arguably the greatest athlete of all-time. Men, there is a cost to being the best. There is a sacrifice that a man needs to make to be fully committed to a cause, a purpose, a passion, a job, etc. If you want to be great than there are things you have to sacrifice along the way. Tom Brady counted the cost and it was a cost that he was willing to pay because he wanted to be the best. As Christ followers, what can we learn from Tom Brady? We need to be the best men of God that we can possibly be and be willing to pay the price.

And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”  // Luke 14:27 (NIV)
