Parable of the Shrewd Manager

Luke 16:1-15  (ID: 0536)

The strong connections we make through networking can make a positive difference—or take us down the wrong path entirely. In Jesus’ parable of the shrewd manager, we see a man commended for his crafty, cunning business dealings. As Alistair Begg teaches us, though, such shrewdness is not the end game. Instead, Jesus challenges us to make a difference for Him through our relationships, using our gifts and abilities in ways that benefit His kingdom.

The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

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.
