The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

Reflection on the Gospel of the Friday
Of The Thirty-First Week In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 16:1-8

On a first quick reading of the passage, we think there’s something wrong.. why would the master commend the dishonest steward?  But on a closer look, Jesus looks at the quality of prudence in the steward. When we are faced with a crisis, we have to act prudently and wisely. 

The wise and prudent choice means using our worldly wealth in a way to procure riches in heaven i.e sharing our wealth with the poor and needy. We are only ‘stewards’ of this worldly wealth and hence we have to manage this task well, in a wise and trustworthy manner.   

We reflect on the choices we make.. what makes us anxious.. do we put ourselves completely in God’s hands trusting his divine providence?
