Scripture: Luke 16:6-9
The unjust steward gave ultimate worship to the enemy and it was received just as if you and I were singing a worship song to the Lord. The steward’s actions expressed his worship by entering into manipulation to gain a preferable position. He bowed to money. He traded his integrity for favor by writing down what was owed. It almost reminds you of Sunday morning in seeker-sensitive Christianity. How can we execute God’s judicial authority if part of our worship is going to the enemy? Jesus warned in verse 9, “to make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon that when you fail they may receive you into everlasting habitations.” The permanent dwelling place Jesus had in mind should at all cost be avoided. Mammonites like the steward need to be prayed out of their positions of authority and into their ultimate reward. We have the authority to demand justice.
