​Jesus teaching challenged the people to live according God's instructions for economic life. These were rooted in love of God and love of neighbour (Lev 19:18). Jesus introduced the concept of "unrighteous wealth. "So if you have not been trustworthy in handling unrighteous wealth, who will trust you with true riches" (Luke 16:11)? People hanging onto unrighteous wealth will not be trusted with spiritual blessing.
