42 The Lord said, “Who, then, is the faithful and careful servant manager whom his master will put in charge of giving all his other servants their share of food at the right time?43 How blessed is that servant whom his master finds doing this when he comes!44 I tell you with certainty, he will put him in charge of all his property. 45 But if that servant says to himself,[a]‘My master is taking a long time to come back,’ and begins to beat the other servants and to eat, drink, and get drunk,46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he doesn’t expect him and at an hour that he doesn’t know. Then his master[b]will punish him severely[c]and assign him a place with unfaithful people.47 That servant who knew what his master wanted but didn’t prepare himself or do what was wanted will receive a severe beating.48 But the servant[d]who did things that deserved a beating without knowing it will receive a light beating. Much will be required from everyone to whom much has been given. But even more will be demanded from the one to whom much has been entrusted.”
