Today we hear a story of a man who was suddenly faced with an ending, as he had squandered his employer’s property and was being fired, so he summoned his employer’s debtors and cut their bills, showing them grace so that he might also know grace from them in the days ahead. We too have been cut a break by Christ, who knew we wouldn’t have enough stored up to wipe the slate clean on our own in order that we might be free to live a new life. Thanks be to God that Christ is an unjust steward of God’s mercy, for by it we are all saved.

Luke 16:1-13
