    Philippians 4:10-19

    10I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me;you were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11Not that I complain of want;for I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content. 12I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound;in any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and want. 13I can do all things in him who strengthens me. 14Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. 15And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedo'nia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving except you only;16for even in Thessaloni'ca you sent me help once and again. 17Not that I seek the gift;but I seek the fruit which increases to your credit. 18I have received full payment, and more;I am filled, having received from Epaphrodi'tus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


    Psalms 112:1-2, 5-6, 8-9

    1Praise the LORD. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! 2His descendants will be mighty in the land;the generation of the upright will be blessed. 5It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. 6For the righteous will never be moved;he will be remembered for ever. 8His heart is steady, he will not be afraid, until he sees his desire on his adversaries. 9He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;his righteousness endures for ever;his horn is exalted in honor.


    Luke 16:9-15

    9And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal habitations. 10"He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much;and he who is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. 11If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, 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 mammon." 14The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they scoffed at him. 15But 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.

    Rom 15:14-21

    I myself am convinced about you, my brothers and sisters,
    that you yourselves are full of goodness,
    filled with all knowledge, and able to admonish one another.
    But I have written to you rather boldly in some respects to remind you,
    because of the grace given me by God
    to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles
    in performing the priestly service of the Gospel of God,
    so that the offering up of the Gentiles may be acceptable,
    sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
    In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to boast in what pertains to God.
    For I will not dare to speak of anything
    except what Christ has accomplished through me
    to lead the Gentiles to obedience by word and deed,
    by the power of signs and wonders,
    by the power of the Spirit of God,
    so that from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum
    I have finished preaching the Gospel of Christ.
    Thus I aspire to proclaim the Gospel
    not where Christ has already been named,
    so that I do not build on another’s foundation,
    but as it is written:

    Those who have never been told of him shall see,
    and those who have never heard of him shall understand.


    PS 98:1, 2-3ab, 3cd-4

    R. (see 2b) The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    Sing to the LORD a new song,
    for he has done wondrous deeds;
    His right hand has won victory for him,
    his holy arm.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    The LORD has made his salvation known:
    in the sight of the nations he has revealed his justice.
    He has remembered his kindness and his faithfulness
    toward the house of Israel.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.
    All the ends of the earth have seen
    the salvation by our God.
    Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
    break into song;sing praise.
    R. The Lord has revealed to the nations his saving power.


    lk 16:1-8

    Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward
    who was reported to him for squandering his property.
    He summoned him and said,
    ‘What is this I hear about you?
    Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
    because you can no longer be my steward.’
    The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
    now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?
    I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.
    I know what I shall do so that,
    when I am removed from the stewardship,
    they may welcome me into their homes.’
    He called in his master’s debtors one by one.
    To the first he said, ‘How much do you owe my master?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’
    He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note.
    Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
    Then to another he said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’
    He replied, ‘One hundred measures of wheat.’
    He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note;
    write one for eighty.’
    And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.
    For the children of this world
    are more prudent in dealing with their own generation
    than the children of light.”
