In Luke 16, we are told about a person who managed funds for a rich man. In the process of managing the funds, he squandered the money entrusted to him. The rich man found out about it and made his manager account for the funds. The manager knew he was wrong and was going to lose his job. He knew that being older if he lost the job, he would not be able to do the kind of work he did when he was younger. He also knew that, at his age, jobs will be harder to find. Many of us know and understand what that is all about.
