welcome me into their homes after Ive lost my job. Then one by one he called in the people who were in debt to his master. He asked the first one, How much do you owe my master? A hundred barrels of olive oil, the man answered. So the manager said, Take your bill and sit down and quickly write fifty. The manager asked someone else who was in debt to his master, How
much do you owe? A thousand bushels of wheat, the man replied. The manager said, Take your bill and write eight hundred. The master praised his dishonest manager for looking out for himself so well. Thats how it is! The people of this world look out for themselves better than the people who belong to the light. Luke 16:1-8
