In this lesson we look at two parables, Jesus’ parable of “The Unjust Steward” (improperly named, we’ll conclude), and Doug’s parable of Fred the Goldfish. The point of both is to ask ourselves if the Reality Narratives we tell ourselves that help us navigate our lives are serving us well. In other words, is the truth we hold to be true, in fact, true.
Then we’ll ask what Jesus was trying to say when he told the story of a steward who ripped off his employer, and got affirmation for doing it from Jesus. What’s that about?
It’s a three-part lesson, so it’s best to listen to all three together.
