Parables of JESUS
Luke 16: 1-13
Luke 16: 1-1316:1 And he said also unto his disciples,
There was a certain rich man, which had a steward;
and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
16:2 And he called him, and said unto him,
How is it that I hear this of thee?
give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
16:3 Then the steward said within himself,
What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship:
I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
16:4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship,
they may receive me into their houses.
16:5 So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first,
How much owest thou unto my lord?
16:6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil.
And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
16:7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou?
And he said, An hundred measures of wheat.
And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
16:8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely:
for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
16:9 And I say unto you,
Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness;
that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:
and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon,
who will commit to your trust the true riches?
16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's,
who shall give you that which is your own?
16:13 No servant can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one, and love the other;
or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
