The parables do not always offer us examples to be imitated! Today’s gospel shocks us by asking whether we Christians put as much wisdom into achieving eternal life as the worldly take to ensure their future. The crafty steward, accused of mis-
management, and in a situation critical for his career, makes the most of the short time he has before he must render an account. The worldly are wiser in conducting their affairs than are those who seek God, Jesus observes. The next saying urges the wise use of money, which we cannot take with us and which affects our lasting riches. We have a choice: to serve God or make money our idol. In the first reading, the prophet Amos denounces dishonest merchants who overcharge the poor and shortchange their customers. God will not forget this exploitation, Amos threatens. The second reading on a very different subject, gives instructions for
community worship. There we profess our faith and are challenged to become just and faithful stewards.
