Luke 16:1-6

NLT 1 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. NIV 1 Jesus told his disciples: "There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions. NLT 2 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.’ NIV 2 So he called him in and asked him, 'What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you cannot be manager any longer.' NLT 3 “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. NIV 3 "The manager said to himself, 'What shall I do now? My master is taking away my job. I'm not strong enough to dig, and I'm ashamed to beg-- NLT 4 Ah, I know how to ensure that I’ll have plenty of friends who will give me a home when I am fired.’ NIV 4 I know what I'll do so that, when I lose my job here, people will welcome me into their houses.' NLT 5 “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?’ NIV 5 "So he called in each one of his master's debtors. He asked the first, 'How much do you owe my master?' NLT 6 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. ’ NIV 6 " 'Eight hundred gallons of olive oil,' he replied. "The manager told him, 'Take your bill, sit down quickly, and make it four hundred.'
