FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24
Scripture: Luke 16:1-7
When the steward discovered he was losing his stewardship, in order to preserve a place for himself, he discounted the message and began to require far less. In verse 6, those who actually owed 100 measures of oil, he gave them a 50% discount. If we spend all our time in church and find we are only 50% equipped, or that we are only 50% of where we should be, who is going to bear that deficit when we need skills that we haven’t taken the time to develop? Who bears the loss? The answer is the church. The entire church bears the loss because of our immaturity. Passivity in the church has greatly enabled evil in advancing its agenda. When a nation sodomizes the military and openly promotes perversion, they open the judicial door to losing whole cities. Biblical judgments cannot be far away. Whole cities were destroyed in Scripture. Whole cities stand in jeopardy because certain leaders champion evil! Will the church be complicit in the destruction of cities because we fail to pray judgment on evil’s champions?
