Context
The Parable of the Unrighteous Steward

1And he said also to his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused to him that he had wasted his goods. 2And he called him, and said to him, How is it that I hear this of you? give an account of your stewardship; for you may be no longer steward. 3Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord takes away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. 4I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5So he called every one of his lord's debtors to him, and said to the first, How much owe you to my lord? 6And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said to him, Take your bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. 7Then said he to another, And how much owe you? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said to him, Take your bill, and write fourscore. 8And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. 9And I say to you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when you fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. 10He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. 11If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12And if you have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own? 13No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
