Luke 16:7-9 Common English Bible (CEB)

Then the manager said to another, ‘How much do you owe?’ He said, ‘One thousand bushels of wheat.’[a] He said, ‘Take your contract and write eight hundred.’

“The master commended the dishonest manager because he acted cleverly. People who belong to this world are more clever in dealing with their peers than are people who belong to the light. I tell you, use worldly wealth to make friends for yourselves so that when it’s gone, you will be welcomed into the eternal homes.
