1 Faithfulness Luke 16:1-13

2 1.He also said to the disciples: “There was a rich man who received an accusation that his manager was squandering his possessions. 2.So he called the manager in and asked, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you can no longer be my manager.’ 3.“Then the manager said to himself, ‘What should I do, since my master is taking the management away from me? I’m not strong enough to dig; I’m ashamed to beg. 4.I know what I’ll do so that when I’m removed from management, people will welcome me into their homes.’

3 5.“So he summoned each one of his master’s debtors. ‘How much do you owe my master?’ he asked the first one. 6.“‘A hundred measures of oil,’ he said. “‘Take your invoice,’ he told him, ‘sit down quickly, and write 50.’ 7.“Next he asked another, ‘How much do you owe?’ “‘A hundred measures of wheat,’ he said. “‘Take your invoice,’ he told him, ‘and write 80.’

4 8.“The master praised the unrighteous manager because he had acted astutely. For the sons of this age are more astute than the sons of light in dealing with their own people. 9.And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of the unrighteous money so that when it fails, they may welcome you into eternal dwellings. 10. Whoever is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and whoever is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous in much. 11. So if you have not been faithful with the unrighteous money, who will trust you with what is genuine? (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
