Using Money

One of several interpretations of the story of the crafty steward (Luke 16:1-13) says that, while wealth can seduce us away from God, it is possible to use it in a good way. We convert wealth into heavenly riches by sharing it with others, especially the needy.  Just as the steward made friends with the debtors by reducing their debt, Jesus tells us "use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into eternal dwellings."
