Jesus concludes his teaching in Luke 16:1-13, The Parable of the Shrewd Manager with three lessons from the story. Today we'll look at the first one.
1. The purpose of wealth is to gain the "welcome" in heaven:
“I tell you, use your worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings” (Luke 16:9).
You only have one life. Use it to enhance your future. When you give, I encourage you to imagine someone thanking you one day for your investment in his or her salvation. That should make all of us more focused on sharing Christ with the world around us.
Be wise always - work for eternal riches.
