The Parable of the Shrewd Manager

Posted by admin on 10 November 2013 in Luke |

Luke 16:1 – 9

The topic of today’s message is The Parable of the Shrewd Manager.

“shrewd” means having or showing sharp powers of judgement; having an ability to assess situations or people accurately.

What this parable teaches us is written in Luke 16:8 - 9. That is, it teaches us to be ‘shrewd’.

‘Be shrewd’ so that you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

The manager in the parable acted shrewdly in the moment just before losing his current job. This moment represents our life. Our life is short and in need of preparing for the spiritual reality after the death. This parable teaches us to be as shrewd as the manager. You don’t have much time to think twice. You need to act now.

Use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves (9a).
