Luke 16:1-6 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "A rich man had a business manager. The manager was accused of wasting the rich man's property. 2 So the rich man called for his manager and said to him, 'What's this I hear about you? Let me examine your books. It's obvious that you can't manage my property any longer.' 3 "The manager thought, 'What should I do? My master is taking my job away from me. I'm not strong enough to dig, and I'm ashamed to beg. 4 I know what I'll do so that people will welcome me into their homes when I've lost my job.' 5 "So the manager called for each one of his master's debtors. He said to the first, 'How much do you owe my master?' 6 "The debtor replied, 'Eight hundred gallons of olive oil.' "The manager told him, 'Take my master's ledger. Quick! Sit down, and write "four hundred!"'
