Stewardship
Luke 16:1-8 And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
  And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
  Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
  I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
  So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
  And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
  Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
  And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
Luke 19:12-27 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
  But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
  And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
  Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
  And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
  And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
  And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
  And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
  For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
  And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
  Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
  And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
  (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
  For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
  But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
1 Corinthians 4:1-2 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
