Sept 22, 2019 - Who Did He Praise?
Luke 16:1-15
Church Family, 


 


There was a rich man who had a manager who was cooking the books--lining his own pockets at the rich man's expense. So the rich man gave this rascal his pink slip. The soon-to-be jobless manager was mortified. He said to himself, "What'll I do? . . . I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg." 



Now here's the outrageous conclusion of this parable: According to Jesus, the rich man commended this dishonest manager because of his actions. Then Jesus added these interesting words: "For the children of this age are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light." This is disturbing--truly outrageous. Jesus, in effect, praised a dishonest man. What in the world could this mean?
