Creative Accounting

Luke 16:1-9  (ID: 2649)

In Luke, Jesus told a masterful story of a shrewd manager who cut deals with those indebted to his master in order to secure connections after his imminent dismissal. Commending the manager for his initiative, Jesus observed that people of the light are often less astute in managing assets. How nimble and sharp should Christians be at handling their money? Alistair Begg encourages believers to strategically invest in the advancement of God’s kingdom for eternal rewards, rejecting a fixation with earthly financial security.

1He also said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions.
