In Luke 16, Jesus tells a parable about a dishonest account who ends up being praised by the master he swindled. We get some seemingly contradictory messages:
Use worldly wealth to make friends for yourselves so that when it’s gone, you will be welcomed into the eternal homes.
You cannot serve God and wealth.
What do we make of all of this? Take a listen!
