Commentary on the Gospel of
The dishonest steward was commended by Jesus for his astuteness. To be astute in this world is to be cunning, shrewd, clever and smart. It may be a value of the world yet people of light can learn something from the steward’s astuteness. In order to assure himself of a good life after his dismissal, the steward did a lot of undoing in the debts of the people. People who are nearing their end wishes to undo many things that they have done: people who need to be forgiven, sins that needs to be confessed, unsettled issues that need closure, personal baggage that needs to be unloaded, relationships that have to be fixed, strayed life that ought to be straightened. We might not have enough time to undo things before our dismissal. Why not start doing things rightly?
