The Parable of the Dishonest Manager
1 Then   Jesus   said   to   the   disciples,   ‘There   was   a   rich
man   who   had   a   manager,   and   charges   were   brought
to him that this man was squandering his property.
2 So   he   summoned   him   and   said   to   him,   “What   is
this   that   I   hear   about   you?   Give   me   an   account   of
your    management,    because    you    cannot    be    my
manager any longer.”
3 Then   the   manager   said   to   himself,   “What   will   I
do,   now   that   my   master   is   taking   the   position   away
from   me?   I   am   not   strong   enough   to   dig,   and   I   am
ashamed to beg.
4 I   have   decided   what   to   do   so   that,   when   I   am
dismissed   as   manager,   people   may   welcome   me
into their homes.”
5 So,   summoning   his   master’s   debtors   one   by   one,
he   asked   the   first,   “How   much   do   you   owe   my
master?”
6 He   answered,   “A   hundred   jugs   of   olive   oil.”   He
said   to   him,   “Take   your   bill,   sit   down   quickly,   and
make it fifty.”
7 Then   he   asked   another,   “And   how   much   do   you
owe?”     He     replied,     “A     hundred     containers     of
wheat.”   He   said   to   him,   “Take   your   bill   and   make
it eighty.”
8 And     his     master     commended     the     dishonest
manager   because   he   had   acted   shrewdly;   for   the
children   of   this   age   are   more   shrewd   in   dealing
with   their   own   generation   than   are   the   children   of
light.
9 And   I   tell   you,   make   friends   for   yourselves   by
means   of   dishonest   wealth   so   that   when   it   is   gone,
they may welcome you into the eternal homes
10 ‘Whoever   is   faithful   in   a   very   little   is   faithful   also
in   much;   and   whoever   is   dishonest   in   a   very   little
is dishonest also in much.
11 If    then    you    have    not    been    faithful    with    the
dishonest   wealth,   who   will   entrust   to   you   the   true
riches?
12 And    if    you    have    not    been    faithful    with    what
belongs   to   another,   who   will   give   you   what   is   your
own?
13 No   slave   can   serve   two   masters;   for   a   slave   will
either    hate    the    one    and    love    the    other,    or    be
devoted    to    the    one    and    despise    the    other.    You
cannot serve God and wealth.’

After Service Coffee Cups - We still have a few months’ supply of the polystyrene ones and propose to continue their use until our supply is exhausted.

1 st Reading: Amos 8:4-7
4   Hear   this,   you   that   trample   on   the   needy,   and
bring to ruin the poor of the land,
5 saying, ‘When will the new moon be over so
that we may sell grain; and the Sabbath, so that
we may offer wheat for sale? We will make the
ephah small and the shekel great, and practise
deceit with false balances,
6 buying the poor for silver and the needy for a
pair of sandals, and selling the sweepings of the
wheat.’
7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob:
Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.

10 ‘Whoever    is    faithful    in    a    very    little    is
