Storyboard Text

  • There was once a rich man who had a servant who managed his property. The rich man was told that the manager was wasting his master's money. 
  • He called him in and said, "What is this i hear about you? Hand in a complete account of your handling of my property, because you cannot be my manager any longer. The servant said to himself, "My master is going to dismiss me from my job. What shall i do?"
  • Then he called his master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, "How much do you owe my master?" "One hundred barrels of olive- oil," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond; sit down and quickly write fifty."
  • And Jesus say " And so I tell you: make friends for yourselves with worldly wealth, so that when it gives out, you will welcomed in the eternal home. Whoever is faithful in small matters will be faithful in large ones; whoever is dishonest in small matters will be dishonest in large ones. If, then , you have not been faithful in handling worldly wealth, how can you be trusted with true wealth? And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what belongs to you?
  •  To another he said, "And you, sir, how much do you owe?" "One hundred measures of wheat," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond and write eighty."
  • As a result the master of this dishonest manager praised him for doing such a shrewd thing; because the people of this world are much more shrewd in handling their affairs that the people who belong to the light.
  • No servant can be the slave of two masters ; he will hate one and love the other; he will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
