Today's reading: September16
@ And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
@ And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
@ Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
@ I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
@ So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
@ And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
@ Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
@ And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
@ And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
@ He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
@ If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
@ And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
@ No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
@ And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
@ And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
