I was surprised to learn that the word translated “shrewd” in the parable of the steward is the same Greek word rendered “wise” in the parables of the Bridesmaids and of the Builders.

The wise man who built his house upon a rock could also be called shrewd for his long-range planning. And the bridesmaids who brought extra oil and wicks for their lamps could be called shrewd for their preparation.
