THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 16 - Verse 2

Verse 2. Give an account. Give a statement of your expenses and of your conduct while you have been steward. This is not to be referred to the day of judgment. It is a circumstance thrown into the parable to prepare the way for what follows. It is true that all will be called to give an account at the day of judgment, but we are not to derive that doctrine from such passages as this, nor are we to interpret this as teaching that our conscience, or the law, or any beings will accuse us in the day of judgment. All that will be indeed true, but it is not the truth that is taught in this passage.

{a} "give an account" Lu 12:42; 1 Co 4:2; 1 Ti 4:14; 1 Pe 4:10
