The Evangeliad (26:43-45)


Section 26:43-45 (corresponding to Luke 16:10-13)

The one proved faithful with small, paltry things
Will faithful be proved in the greatest of things;
But the one who's faithless with trifles will be
Found acting toward treasures similarly.

If then the mammon of this world's excess
Finds you untrue and absorbed with yourselves,
And so, acting thus with the trifle of wealth,
Who will entrust you with anything else?

The treasures of true wealth will not be yours
If you have unrighteousness heaped at your doors;
For God and mammon you cannot both serve,
Lest poor of true wealth you be in the world.
