Story of the Shrewd Manager
Jesus said, “There once was a rich man who enlisted a manager to take care of his property. But the manager was accused of wasting his master’s possessions, so the Owner called him in and said, ‘You must now give me an account of your stewardship and report what you’ve done with what I entrusted to you because your time as a manager is ending!’

The manager thought, ‘What am I going to do now? I’m losing my job but I’m not strong enough to dig ditches and I’m too proud to beg! I know what I’ll do—so that after I lose my job, I’ll have plenty of friends to take care of me!’ So he called in everybody who was in debt to his master. He asked the first man, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ ‘800 gallons of olive oil,’ he replied.

The manager said, ‘OK. Tear up that bill, and write a new bill that says you only owe 400 gallons.’ Next, the manager found another debtor and asked, ‘How much do YOU owe?’ ‘1000 bushels of wheat,’ he replied.

The manager said, ‘OK, change your bill to say you only own 800.’ Now when the Master heard what the dishonest manager had done, he still praised his shrewdness. For worldly people are more shrewd in handling their affairs than are those who belong to the Light.”
Luke 16:1-13
