You may be shocked to hear Jesus praising the injustice of the steward who is struggling to pay his debts. Jesus admires the clever way he prepares for his uncertain future. Jesus says ‘No one can be a servant of two masters, you cannot be a slave of God and Money’. However Jesus also says, Money can so easily become a substitute for God in our lives and has formed the basis of secular religion in our time, that of progress. We live at a time where we have become very wealthy. We seem to be able to do what we wish. The Earthly City of Progress has replaced the City of God for many.

When have you been a slave to money? How do you use money? True happiness comes from God and not from money and the world.
