mammon of unrighteousness

Luke 16:9

16:9 mammon of unrighteousness. Mammon was an Aramaic term meaning “wealth” or “money.” As “the love of money is the root of all evil” (I Timothy 6:10), mammon can easily become “the mammon of unrighteousness.” As the Lord says (Luke 16:13): “Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Nevertheless, He exhorts the “children of light” to make friends with this mammon of unrighteousness. That is, we should use it for spiritual purposes that will make eternal friends.
