Luke 16: 1-9

Jesus told this story to his disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a manager handling his affairs. One day a report came that the manager was wasting his employer’s money. So the employer called him in and said, ‘What’s this I hear about you? Get your report in order, because you are going to be fired.’

“The manager thought to himself, ‘Now what? My boss has fired me. I don’t have the strength to dig ditches, and I’m too proud to beg. Ah, I know how to ensure that I’ll have plenty of friends who will give me a home when I am fired.’

“So he invited each person who owed money to his employer to come and discuss the situation. He asked the first one, ‘How much do you owe him?’ The man replied, ‘I owe him 800 gallons of olive oil.’ So the manager told him, ‘Take the bill and quickly change it to 400 gallons.

‘And how much do you owe my employer?’ he asked the next man. ‘I owe him 1,000 bushels of wheat,’ was the reply. ‘Here,’ the manager said, ‘take the bill and change it to 800 bushels.

"The rich man had to admire the dishonest rascal for being so shrewd. And it is true that the children of this world are more shrewd in dealing with the world around them than are the children of the light. Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.

He who dies with the most stuff dies. Someday, your heart will stop beating and your bank account, house, stock portfolio, business, and valuables will be left to someone who didn't earn them. You can't take it with you but the good news is that you can become a Heavenly millionaire.

God does not care about material possessions but he does care about people. On Judgment Day when you stand before Jesus He will ask for references; the poor, the sick, the lonely, the widow, the fatherless, and anyone who could not repay you but you helped anyway. The people who matter the least in this life will matter the most in Heaven; so while there is still time be a clever accountant and invest in Heaven. Eternity is coming to your house are you ready?
