Why did Jesus use negative people as an example here?
Luke 16:1 - 13
ESV - 1 He also said to the disciples, "There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions. 2 And he called him and said to him, 'What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your management, for you can no longer be manager.

I think this manager can be seen as a figure of speech for the majority of us and how we act. God gave us life and our life is His possession, but do we really make a proper use of it? E.g. : increasing our spiritual knowledge or do we just waste it in an unworthy manner?
