    Parable of the dishonest manager: The Kingdom of God works on different principles than we’re used to. Efficiency, practicality, and self-interest are not the core values of the Kingdom. God expects a lot more for us (and from us) than we expect him to.

But with this text in front of me for this morning I was forced to think about it more seriously. And I find that many of the problems are actually only on the ...read more
