David LinsCatholic Thoughts

Faith Reflected in Our Works

09-22-2019David Lins

This is one of those Gospels where 90% of Catholics either wonder it was they just heard as they mumble “thanks be to God” or miss it entirely (statistic entirely made up).

Jesus tells the story of a financial advisor who messes up and destroys his employer’s portfolio. Then, before he is fired, he goes out and accepts various partial payments as full payments without permission. Thus, he makes friends with those who were able to settle their debts at fractions of the full amount due. This ensures he has opportunities once he is fired.

The crazy part? Jesus seems to affirm this man’s behavior!

What is actually happening here?
