Investing for Eternity — Part Two

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 7

Luke 16:10-15  (ID: 2236)

As Jesus expounded on the parable of the dishonest manager, His teaching was clear: we cannot serve both God and money. In this message from Luke 16, Alistair Begg explores how God uses disappointments, disease, and death to wean us from an attachment to this world and focus our eyes on God’s Kingdom. Our hold of this world and its possessions will diminish only when we are gripped by the hope of eternity.


10“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. 11If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? 13No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

The Law and the Kingdom of God

14The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him. 15And he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.
