How would Jesus use His Money?

June 30, 2015

What is your view on this? I kind of agree with him. As a nurse, I took care of people and did not worry about what sins they had committed. I did not say I couldn’t take care of this woman because she was a prostitute, or this man because he murdered someone. I hoped I was a witness to them which is pretty much what Peter is saying. Yet, I know my money would be used to advance a cause I don’t believe in. I know nothing about the bank I use. Should I?

Of all the stories that Jesus told, the Parable of the Shrewd Manager in Luke 16 is probably the most difficult one to understand. Most of the others are somewhat straight forward. This one, however, is tough because Jesus seems to be siding with the bad guy. He picks the guy who does wrong and is dismissed by his employer. The point of the story, however, isn’t that the manager was bad, it was how he used his master’s money to make sure he still had friends after he was let go. Jesus says that the lesson in the story is to, “Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.” [1]
