Jesus said to his disciples, "There was once a rich man who had a servant who managed his property. The rich man was told that the manager was wasting his master's money,
so he called him in and said, "What is this I hear about you? Turn in a complete account of your handling of my property, because you cannot be my manager any longer.'
The servant said to himself, "My master is going to dismiss me from my job. What shall I do? I am not strong enough to dig ditches, and I am ashamed to beg.
Now I know what I will do! Then when my job is gone, I shall have friends who will welcome me in their homes.'
So he called in all the people who were in debt to his master. He asked the first one, "How much do you owe my master?'
"One hundred barrels of olive oil,' he answered. "Here is your account,' the manager told him; "sit down and write fifty.'
