B: Bib Fortuna / 聰明的管家

電影《武士復仇》(Return of the Jedi)中有一個管家的角色,他的名字是Bib Fortuna,負責打理土豪惡覇Jabba的城寨。這個管家想必十分聰明和能幹,因為伴君如伴虎,沒有能力的人不能擔當這樣的職位。可惜他選擇跟隨邪惡的主人,最後不得善終。


B: Bib Fortuna

In the Return of the Jedi, there is a housekeeper/manager character called Bib Fortuna who is in charge of looking after the palace of the cruel crime lord, Jabba the Hutt. This head manager was exceptionally clever and capable that he was given a high-status position. Unfortunately, he chose to serve a cruel master so did not have a good ending.

In the Bible, Jesus gave a parable about a manager. He told his disciples to be like a faithful manager who is always ready because the master of the house could come at an unexpected hour. (Luke 12:40)
Combining the wisdom of the two stories, believers should behave like a wise manager, one who is faithful in serving one”s master. But, most importantly, one must make wise decision to follow a good master.

“The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?” (Luke 12:42)
