The Unjust Steward

“And so I say to you make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.” Luke 16:9

This literally happened where a woman lost her job/apartment, but immediately moved in with a friend whom she’d helped previously.

Jesus in Luke 16: “He also said to His disciples:

‘There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.”

“So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.” Luke 16:1-2

“Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? … I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.'” Luke 16:3-4

“Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ So he said, ‘one hundred measures of wheat.’ And he said to him, ‘Take your bill and write eighty.’ So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd than the sons of Light.” Luke 16:7-8

“And so I say to you make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.” Luke 16:9

 

Believe in the Light

“While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them.” John 12:36 (NKJV).

“The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.”  Revelation 21:23-24 (NKJV).

“Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path,” Psalm 119:105.  Running through my mind this morning.

“The light shines in the darkness and the darkness does’t overcome it,” John 1:5.

“Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 (AMP).
