Bible Text: Amos 8:4-7, Luke 16:1-13 | Rev. David A. Douthett
In our scriptures for today we have the prophet Amos taking some blatant cheaters to task for taking advantage of the poor, which is absolutely in violation of God's revealed will and commandments. Then Jesus tells a parable about a steward/manager who cheats his boss but is commended for being shrewd and clever about it! What? Aren't cheaters supposed to get what's coming to them, get a comeuppance? That Jesus, always turning things on their heads!
