Shrewdness is Scriptural
Sun, Jul 09, 2017
"The master commended the dishonest manager for his shrewdness. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. 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." -- Matthew 16:8-9(ESV) We have all admired those stories about less than pure characters using only their brains to turn an impossible situation back to their advantage. Movies like The Sting, Ocean 11, and The Italian Job are modern stories like that. Jesus in Luke 16 uses a parable similar to those stories in an unusual way that teaches us some godly truths centered around a surprising character. This week, Lynn Oakes will be unraveling this strange parable about a dishonest manager in the first 16 verses of Luke 16. We encourage you to take a look at this parable before Sunday. Hope to see you and your friends there.
