Show Notes for Grains from Gutteridge Podcast Episode #18:
The Wise But Unfaithful Steward
God has always put His work out to the care of stewards. In the past, “Sons of God” came to report to Him at intervals (Job 1:6, etc.). Some have been unfaithful. In the present, God has His faithful and unfaithful servants who have the choice of far greater service in the everlasting future. In this parable, the unfaithful but repentant steward was forgiven and restored; the unrepentant steward was punished. In this message, the true meaning of the difficult passage of Scripture concerning making “friends through the mammon of unrighteousness” is made clear.
