Romans 15: 14 - 21

I myself am satisfied about you, my brethren, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, and able to instruct one another.
But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God
to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
In Christ Jesus, then, I have reason to be proud of my work for God.
For I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has wrought through me to win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed,
by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Holy Spirit, so that from Jerusalem and as far round as Illyr'icum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ,
thus making it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on another man's foundation,
but as it is written, "They shall see who have never been told of him, and they shall understand who have never heard of him."

Psalms 98: 1 - 4

O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory.
The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!



Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Luke 16: 1 - 8

He also said to the disciples, "There was a rich man who had a steward, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.
And he called him and said to him, `What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.'
And the steward said to himself, `What shall I do, since my master is taking the stewardship away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg.
I have decided what to do, so that people may receive me into their houses when I am put out of the stewardship.'
So, summoning his master's debtors one by one, he said to the first, `How much do you owe my master?'
He said, `A hundred measures 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 said, `A hundred measures of wheat.' He said to him, `Take your bill, and write eighty.'
The master commended the dishonest steward for his shrewdness; for the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light.
