For Love of God or Money: the Dishonest Steward in Marriage & Divorce

Last Sunday's Gospel is one of my least favorite. It just doesn't seem to make sense.
You have a dishonest steward, caught in his dishonesty, who then is fired but allowed to keep working for a short while. In that short while, he calls in the master's debtors and writes new promissory notes for reduced amounts and is then commended by the very master who fired him for being dishonest in the first place!

 Make sense? Yeah, sure. It sounds a bit like divorce court. Get tired of your spouse. Cheat on your Marriage. Fire your (faithful) spouse through divorce. Have a judge write up some paperwork to break the civil contract required for this Sacramental bond and reward the dishonest spouse financially, materially, and in time with children. 

To read the rest of my post and to find possible meaning behind this difficult to understand parable, the Parable of the Dishonest Steward, please join me at

God Bless...
