Luke 16:1-13

This parable is one of the more difficult to understand. Simply, in anticipation of his impending financial crisis resulting from his being fired for mismanaging funds, the steward goes out and reduces the debts of his master’s debtors. He wins favor with them and his master securing his future. Jesus is not concerned with financial matters but with foresight and planning in spiritual matters in order to secure eternity.

I spend hours planning my finances for the future and only a fraction of that time preparing for eternal life with you. I want to trust you have my temporal life in hand and focus on preparing for my eternal life with you.
