Luke 16:1-13

No room at the inn

Christ makes present, through the poor, his judgment of the world: whoever does this to the least of these does it to me (Matt 25:40). Therefore, the disciple who is devoted to mammon (wealth) is best to apportion his wealth among those allotted the heavenly rooms: the poor, the widow and the repentant sinner. When Christ comes again, one of the poor may offer the disciple a room in the Father’s house (see also Luke 12:13-21).
