With the prospect of discharge before him, the steward saw three paths open to his choice.  He must labor, beg, or starve.  And he said within himself, “What shall I do? for my LORD takes away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.  I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.  So he called every one of his lord’s debtors to him, and said to the first, How much owe you to my lord? And he said, A hundred measures of oil.  And he said to him, Take your bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.  Then said he to another, And how much owe you? And he said, A hundred measures of wheat.  And he said to him, Take your bill, and write fourscore.” {COL 367.1}

This unfaithful servant made others sharers with him in his dishonesty. 

He defrauded his master to advantage them, and by accepting this advantage they placed themselves under obligation to receive him as a friend into their homes.  {COL 367.2}

“And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely.” The worldly man praised the sharpness of the man who had defrauded him.  But the rich man’s commendation was not the commendation of God.  {COL 367.3}

Christ did not commend the unjust steward, but He made use of a well-known occurrence to illustrate the lesson He desired to teach.  “Make to yourselves friends by means of the mammon of unrighteousness,” He said, “that when it shall fail, they may receive you into the eternal tabernacles.” R.V.  {COL 367.4}
