Accountability in the parable of the unjust steward

Consider the parable of the unjust steward found in  Luke 16:1-13
In this parable the KEY STATEMENT is found in verse 2

“Give an account of thy stewardship.”

Accountability is clearly a New Testament principle!
1 Timothy 6:6-11 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.  But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.   For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.”
Money is not evil in itself, but the love of money has destroyed many.  We need to carefully consider this warning!
