Two Cheers for Shrewdness

Luke 16:1-8

Look: the majority of people in this town stayed in bed this morning. Or they got up and are reading the newspaper, maybe sipping their Cariboo coffee at an Einstein’s. That’s why good church-going people might call them “children of this age.” But, unlike them, you got up, got dressed, and came here to Wasatch – certifying you as the closest thing in Salt Lake City to “children of light.” And some of you are expecting me to say, “Relax. You can all thank God that when faced with a perplexing parable like this one, you are in the hands of a qualified professional with an advanced degree or two.”
