The Parable of the Unjust Steward

 

Luke 16:1-13

 

Parables helped Jesus convey teachings.

He taught the Apostles to be clever.

 

Saint Josemaria Escriva wrote,

“What zeal people put into their earthly

Affairs…When you and I put the same zeal

Into the affairs of our souls, we will

Have a living and working faith.  And there

Will be no obstacle that we cannot

Overcome in our apostolic works.

 

The Navarre Bible notes are instructive.

“at all times, in little things and big things,

In wealth or poverty our focus should

Be on God.”  Christ said “And I tell you,”

God alone is the source of every good.
