Imagine a story about a rich man that had a dishonest employee, and he brings charges against the manager. As the rogue employee is about to get fired, he curries favor with the owner’s debtors by forgiving some of their debts, and is later commended by a rabbi for his shrewdness. 


Such is the story Jesus told in Luke chapter 16 when He used a negative example to make a positive point that we are all stewards not owners of the wealth God has entrusted to us. 


Jesus goes on to tell the children of light to “make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings” (v. 9).
