不义的管家

16 耶稣又对门徒说:“有一个财主的管家,别人向他主人告他浪费主人的财物。 主人叫他来,对他说:‘我听见你这事怎么样呢?把你所经管的交代明白,因你不能再做我的管家。’ 那管家心里说:‘主人辞我,不用我再做管家,我将来做什么?锄地呢,无力;讨饭呢,怕羞。 我知道怎么行,好叫人在我不做管家之后,接我到他们家里去。’ 于是,把欠他主人债的一个一个地叫了来,问头一个说:‘你欠我主人多少?’ 他说:‘一百篓[a]油。’管家说:‘拿你的账,快坐下写五十。’ 又问一个说:‘你欠多少?’他说:‘一百石麦子。’管家说:‘拿你的账,写八十。’ 主人就夸奖这不义的管家做事聪明,因为今世之子在世事之上,较比光明之子更加聪明。 我又告诉你们:要借着那不义的钱财结交朋友,到了钱财无用的时候,他们可以接你们到永存的帐幕里去。 10 人在最小的事上忠心,在大事上也忠心;在最小的事上不义,在大事上也不义。 11 倘若你们在不义的钱财上不忠心,谁还把那真实的钱财托付你们呢? 12 倘若你们在别人的东西上不忠心,谁还把你们自己的东西给你们呢?

一个仆人不能侍奉两个主

13 “一个仆人不能侍奉两个主,不是恶这个爱那个,就是重这个轻那个。你们不能又侍奉神,又侍奉玛门。”

14 法利赛人是贪爱钱财的,他们听见这一切话,就嗤笑耶稣。 15 耶稣对他们说:“你们是在人面前自称为义的,你们的心,神却知道。因为人所尊贵的,是神看为可憎恶的。

The Parable of the Shrewd Manager

16 Jesus told his disciples: “There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions.(A) 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.’

“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— I know what I’ll do so that, when I lose my job here, people will welcome me into their houses.’

“So he called in each one of his master’s debtors. He asked the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’

“‘Nine hundred gallons[a] of olive oil,’ he replied.

“The manager told him, ‘Take your bill, sit down quickly, and make it four hundred and fifty.’

“Then he asked the second, ‘And how much do you owe?’

“‘A thousand bushels[b] of wheat,’ he replied.

“He told him, ‘Take your bill and make it eight hundred.’

“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world(B) are more shrewd(C) in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light.(D) I tell you, use worldly wealth(E) to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.(F)

10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much,(G) and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth,(H) who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?

13 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”(I)

14 The Pharisees, who loved money,(J) heard all this and were sneering at Jesus.(K) 15 He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves(L) in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts.(M) What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.
