“Here’s the lesson:
Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends.
Then, when your possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home . . .
If you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? . . .
You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.”
~Luke 16:9, 11, 13 NLT~
