Luke 16:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

“Then the manager asked another one, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ He answered, ‘I owe him 100 measures[a] of wheat.’ Then the manager said to him, ‘Here is your bill; you can make it less. Write 80 measures.’

“Later, the master told the dishonest manager that he had done a smart thing. Yes, worldly people are smarter in their business with each other than spiritual people are.

“I tell you, use the worldly things you have now to make ‘friends’ for later. Then, when those things are gone, you will be welcomed into a home that lasts forever.
