Je­sus said to his dis­ci­ples: “I tell you, make friends for your­selves with dis­hon­est wealth, so that when it fails, you will be wel­comed into eter­nal dwellings. The per­son who is trust­wor­thy in very small mat­ters is also trust­wor­thy in great ones; and the per­son who is dis­hon­est in very small mat­ters is also dis­hon­est in great ones. If, there­fore, you are not trust­wor­thy with dis­hon­est wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? If you are not trust­wor­thy with what be­longs to an­other, who will give you what is yours? No ser­vant can serve two masters. He will ei­ther hate one and love the other, or be de­voted to one and de­spise the other. You can­not serve God and mam­mon.”

The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all th­ese things and sneered at him. And he said to them, “You jus­tify your­selves in the sight of oth­ers, but God knows your hearts; for what is of hu­man es­teem is an abom­i­na­tion in the sight of God.”
