Luke 16:10-15

"He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who
is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. If therefore
you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous mammon (money), who will entrust
the true riches to you?"

"And if you have not been faithful in the use of that which is another's, who will
give you that which is your own?"

"No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the
other, or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God
and mammon."

"Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things,
and they were scoffing at Him. And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves
in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed
among men is detestable in the sight of God." Luke 16:10- 15 (NAS)


Has God entrusted time, money, possessions and/or health to you?

Have you been a faithful steward of these things that God has given you?

Do you help others with what God has given you?

"If a person can be trusted with small things, then he can also be trusted with
big things. If a person is dishonest in little things, then he will be dishonest
in big things too."

"If you cannot be trusted with worldly riches, then you will not be trusted with
the true (heavenly) riches. And if you cannot be trusted with the things that belong
to someone else, then you will not be given things of your own."

"No servant can serve two masters at the same time. The servant will hate one master
and love the other. Or he will be loyal to one and not care about the other. You
cannot serve God and Money at the same time."

"The Pharisees were listening to all these things. The Pharisees criticized Jesus
because they all loved money. Jesus said to the Pharisees, "You make yourselves
look good in front of people. But God knows what is really in your hearts. The things
that people think are important are worth nothing to God." Luke 16:10-15 (ERV)
