The Faith Corner- The Dishonest Manager

Scripture

Luke 16:1-13


Jesus told a story about a rich man who had a manager working for him who was dishonest. The rich man asked his manager to explain how he’d been using the rich man’s money, and sure enough, he had been taking some of the money for himself and cheating his employer.


The manager was fired, but before he was, he made up a plan to make some friends who could help him when he was out of work. He went to all the people who owed his employer. He found out how much they each owed, and said they could pay a much smaller amount, if they paid now. These people were happy to pay a fraction of what they owed, and the manager became their friend since he gave them a discount.


After Jesus told this parable, he said to his disciples, "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much." If people know that they can trust us in small things, they will know that they can trust us in the big things too (Luke 16:1-13).


God, help us to remember what Jesus taught about honesty--and help us to be honest in every situation--big or small.


In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Assemblies will be held in the gymnasium at approximately 8:10 on certain days of the week. We welcome you to join us, pray and be present as we unite together in prayer at Holy Redeemer school. Here are some of the upcoming dates for our faith assemblies:


Monday September 26th - Lead by Staff and student leadership team
