Luke 16

1  And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.

2  And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.

3  Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.

4  I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.

5  So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?

6  And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.

7  Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.

8  And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

9  And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

10  He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
