The Shrewd Manager

Jesus: There was once a rich man…
Peter: Another one?
Jesus: Oh yes, Peter – but this story is about his manager. One day the rich man pulls him into his office and says:
Rich man: What’s this I’ve been hearing about you?
Manager: What do you mean?
Rich man: Look at these accounts – you’ve been running a huge bill on your expense account. Explain yourself.
Manager: Ah – well, you see, it’s sort of like this…
Rich man: Don’t bother. You’re fired.
Manager: No!
Rich man: What do you mean no! Yes! You’re fired. Pack up your belongings and sort out any outstanding deals – you’re out of here. Jesus: So the manager went off by himself to think for a while.
Manager: Hmm… This is difficult. I’m getting old – I can’t just go and work in the fields and I can’t build houses. I don’t want to end up begging, I need to get a few friends on my side.
Jesus: A week later the rich man called the manager in again.
