equal share

Friday September 27th, Luke 16: 9 My disciples, I tell you to use wicked wealth to make friends for yourselves. Then when it is gone, you will be welcomed into an eternal home. 10 Anyone who can be trusted in little matters can also be trusted in important matters. But anyone who is dishonest in little matters will be dishonest in important matters.  Wait! What!?! What wicked wealth is Jesus talking about?   I think that step one is to recognize that in God’s world everyone is equal and entitled to an equal share of the wealth in this world.  The fact that some are worth billions while others are getting by on less than a dollar a day for their family is not a matter of initiative and enterprise so much as it is the result of an unjust systems that we as humanity have managed to fashion throughout the millennia of human existence.  Now that we have this ungodly and uneven distribution of wealth, what are we going to do with it, that is the question.  In Jesus lies the answer.  We are all part of the body of Christ, what part are you?  (Cartoon by David Hayward, www.nakedpastor.com)
