MONEY MATTERS: Jesus Commands Us to Use Our Money for Eternal Impact (Luke 16:1-9)

Jesus tells a rather strange story of a man who worked for a rich guy as a manager. He was a “steward” who was in charge of the financial affairs of this rich man. However, he had loosely handled the finances of his boss and was “called in on the carpet.” His boss basically told him to tie things up because he was going to terminate his employment. He was no longer trustworthy. The soon-to-be-unemployed steward worried for a bit, and then set out on a plan to make friends on the outside with the authority he still held with his boss’s money. It worked, and his boss was impressed at his strategy. Jesus then compares that steward with us. Our money really belongs to God. And we are to use “our” money to make friends in eternity. How can that happen? Our study will answer that question.
