Why It Is Wise to Be Generous

Audio Sermon on The Parable of the Dishonest Steward

This parable is a tough one because the rich guy, who in many parables represents God, praises a dishonest farm manager. (Read the story here.)  What are we to do with this? I will start with what we know about God and the proper use of wealth and then show how the parable illustrates the wisdom of generosity. Oh, and that bit about praising a dishonest man? Wait until you hear what I do with that!
