I Cannot Dig! ~ Lessons of Labor!


   

You Cannot Serve Elohim And Mammon!
Yeshua said to His disciples: There was a certain rich man who had a steward. And he was accused to him, that he had wasted his goods. And he called him and said to him, What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you may no longer be steward. And the steward said within himself, What shall I do? For my lord is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. I know what I will do, so that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
So he called everyone of his lord's debtors and said to the first: How much do you owe my lord? He replied: A hundred baths of oil. And he said to him: Take your bill and sit down quickly and write fifty! Then he said to another: And how much do you owe? He replied: A hundred cors of wheat. So he said to him: Take your bill and write eighty! But the unjust steward's lord commended him because he had done wisely. For the children of this world are in their generation, wiser than the children of light.
But I say to you; make friends by the mammon of unrighteousness for yourselves, so that when you fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings. He who is faithful in the least is also faithful in much. And he who is unjust in the least is also unjust in much. Therefore, if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust the true riches to you? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who shall give you that which is your own?
No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve Elohim and mammon!
Being money-lovers, all the Pharisees also, heard all these things, and they derided Him. But He said to them: You are those who justify yourselves before men, but Elohim knows your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of Elohim! (Luke 16:1-15)
