Why did Jesus say to use the worldly wealth to gain friends for ourselves?

So that when it is gone, we will be welcomed into eternal dwellings?

Luke 16:9

ESV - 9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings.
