Luke 16:1-15

January 21, 2018

Jesus’ parables redraw the circles of who’s in and who’s out–as he causes his listeners to examine the state of their heart. In the parable of the shrewd manager, a man facing the loss of his livelihood is commended for forgiving the debts of his master’s debtors and ingratiating himself to those people–revealing Jesus Kingdom priority on people and grace over wealth and position, which is unlike the the Pharisees who on the outside look good but are full of love of money and pride of heart.
