  1. What Were You Thinking? Luke 16 The Parable Stories of Jesus ‘The Parable of the Shrewd Manager’

  2. Some of the most amazing stories are those of the genre called ‘dumb criminal’ stories.

  4. The Character of God! The Parable of the Lost Sheep & Coin

  5. The Nature of the Kingdom! Parable of the Soils

  6. How We Should Think! The Parable of the Shrewd Manager

  7. Luke 16:1-8, 13-15 He also said to His disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man…

  8. …was wasting his goods. 2 So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’

  9. “Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. 4 I have resolved what to do…

  10. …that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.’ 5 “So he called every one of his master’s debtors to him, and said to the first…

  11. ‘How much do you owe my master?’ 6 And he said, ‘A hundred measures of oil.’ So he said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’ 7 Then he said to another…

  12. ‘And how much do you owe?’ So he said, ‘A hundred measures of wheat.’ And he said to him, ‘Take your bill, and write eighty.’ 8 So the master commended the unjust steward…

  13. …because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light. 13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one…

  14. …and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” 14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these…

  15. …things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men…

  16. …is an abomination in the sight of God.” Luke 16:1-8, 13-15
