FOR THOSE WHO

LESSON FOR MAY 10
THE UNJUST STEWARD.
LESSON TEXT-Luke 16:1-13.
GOLDEN TEXT "He that Is faithful
In a very little In faithful also In much;
and ho that Is unrighteous In a very little
In tirlrlghteous also In much," Luke 1C:10.
Again in one chapter and hero
only) we have before us two of the
Master'B more famous parables, the
unjust steward andthe rich man and
Lazarus, Both are parables of warn
ing against the common sins of hypoc
risy and gluttony. Luke links this
teaching with the events In connec
tion with our Lord's teaching about
the lost things. There is clearly a
close connection. The parable of the
lost things was spoken directly to the
Pharisees and scribes, that now bo-
fore us to the disciples The fail
ure of the Pharisees as stewards of i
the things of God, the divine law, '
calls from Jesus, for those gathered
as his disciples, teaching that will
prepare them to fulfill perfectly the
stewardship responsibilities. The story'
is both positive and negative, Is
direct against covetouBness, and Its
main purpose to us is how to use
money, while we have It, so that It
may bring us a recompense in the
eternal world when It is gone (v. 9).
Immoral Acts Not Approved.
J. The Unrighteous Steward, vv. 1-3.
Our Lord does not, of course, intend
that this steward Is to be our pattern
in every respect. He Is taking a
"son of the world" (v. 8 R. V. and
showing us that, In the UHe of money
entrusted to his care, he Is
provision for the future. He is pre
paring himself against the time when
his stewardship is taken from him.
How much more shall a "son of the
light" be shrewd, so to use the money
entrusted to his stewardship, that
when it is taken from him, he has
provided for the future. The record
does not imply that Jesus approved of
the man's immoral actions. He Is us
ing the example of an uprighteous
steward as a contrast to show how
much more is to be expected from God
or godly men, Luke 18:6, 7; 11:5-8;
Matt. 12:11, 12. Recognizing these
facts, the story is perfectly simple and
straightforward. The dishonest "son
of his age" has a wrong method,
though his motive from this point of
view is a wise and prudent one, clever
in our modern use of that word. This

is established In the parable between
men wholly of their age, and men,
professedly, at least, sons of light. In
their dealings with Sternal things they
had not shown the same astuteness
as the former. Luke 15 deals with the
heartless contempt of the Pharisees
for those who are lost, while the
parables of this chapter deal with,
stewardship faithfulness (I Cor. 5:2).
On Higher Level.
II. The Use of Money, vs. 9-13. The
value of this parable is in the actual
teaching of Jesus which follows the,
parable. That is introductory, empha
sizing the need for wisdom on tho
part of all stewards. After that we
are on a higher level and in a clear
er atmosphere. Unrighteous mam
mon means money, and to make
friends "by means of the mammon ot
unrighteousness" (R. V.) is so to
use our money for the godly poor as
to win their love and that they may
receive us into tho eternal tabernacles
to which they shall go, see Matt. 19:
21; 25:33-40; 6:19; I Tim. 6:17-19;
Prov. 19:17. As has been said, JesuB
does not commend this steward for his
wrong use of his master's money, but
tho steward 'of God has tho right to
bestow his Master's goods upon tho
needy, as that is the very reason they
have been bestowed upon him en
trusted to his care. Matt. 24:45; I
Pet. 4:10. Our entrance into the king
dom will be more abundant because of
our liberality with God's money, Matt.
19:21. This does not preclude faith,
but rather, real faith worketh by love,
Gal. 5:6. James 2:18, (R. V.). If
we are faithful with that entrusted to
our stewardship, God will entrust us
with "tho true riches." Our earthly
riches belong to another (v. 12 R. V.),
and we cannot serve "two masters."
This story moves within the realm of
material wealth, e. g., of mammon. It
illustrates the higher wisdom of how
mammon is to bo used by the stew
ards of the kingdom of God. Verses
J5 and 16 of this chapter reveal to us
our uora s reason iot bucu uu umour
tion. It was directed against the cov
etous and false stewards, the Phari
sees, who "scoffed at him because they
were lovers of monoyl" We are to
use money so as to make friends, not
friends for this present life, but for
that life which lies beyond the grave..
Stewardship principles are always
the same, no matter what the amount,
j'ha. that is unrighteous In a very little
is unrighteous also in much." This
argument is followed by two ques
tions. The answer to the first is that
no one ever commits the stewardship
of spiritual things to those who are
unfaithful in material things A man
shows by his faithfulness In material
things whether he Is to be entrusted
with spiritual stewardship. The sea
bad question is answered In that men
do not give that which is their own to
ttoie who have not been faithful u

M5 COMPLETED HIS
nOIIHG PICTUQE RECORD
OF THE GIANT TASK OF
5CEME5 WILL APPEAR IN THE
PPINCFAL THEATRES OF EIGHT
HUNDQED AMERICAN CITES AND
TOWIS A5 A FEATURE OF THE
NEW TRAVEL FESTIVAL.
This photograph is from the Lyman
H. Howe reproduction of the Panama
Canal, one of the features of the new
Travel Festival coming to Bell's Opera
House on Wednesday, May 13. It was
taken when one of the gtes which
guard the approach of the great locks
was being formed.
As most readers of this newspaper
know, the canal is virtually completed
and there is water in it. It is only a
question now of the formal opening of
the "big ditch" to the commerce of
the world Already small vessels, canal
tugs and the like have passed through
The big locks are double, so that
vessels can pass In either direction,
jnst as trains do on a turnout or a dou
ble track. Each of the three locks
represents a different level for the ves
sels passing through.
In passing from ocean to ocean In
either direction a vessel takes three
steps upward and three downward by
locks. After a ship has left the high
est locks at Gatun she is afloat in the
lake. She then proceeds through the
canal proper to Pedro Miguel. There
she Is lowered to the level of Miraflores
Lake. At Miraflores she take two
other downward steps through locks.
Then she reaches the level of the
Pacific and may proceed without dif
ficulty. It Is not only as a portrayal of the
greatest engineering feat since the
dawn of time that makes the repro
duction of the construction of the
Panama Canal so notable. Nor Is it
merely the purely machanlcal aspect
of the scenes. But this reproduction
has still a deeper significance in that
it records how man can conquer nature
by patience, tenacity of purpose and
perfect organization combined with
engineering and mechanical genius,
wlldering in its variety as!to baffle de
scription. It conveys an idea of the
infinite magnitude of the work as no
words could hope to Impart, and spec
tators are amazed and fascinated not
alone by the astounding magnitude of
the work, but in almost equal degree
by the skill and perfection of the re
