The Unrighteous Stewart Explained
The rich man is God who is rich and freely gives of his wealth. The steward is the Jewish nation who were given the responsibility of administering the wealth of God. But because Gods wealth was being wasted, the Jews were to be replaced by a new steward (Jesus Christ). Verse 3-7 Lu 16:3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. 4 I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. 5 So he called every one of his lords debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord? 6 And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty. 7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
Here they are being told that if they would understand this, they should plan for the future. They will no longer be in a position to take what isnt theirs because Gods blessings would come by way of another steward. If they are not to be left out in the cold they must take that which they stole and give to them who are in debt. In that way they will be remembered when those who are in debt have the blessings and the former stewards are in debt. Verse 8 Lu 16:8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. The Lord commends the former steward not for his unrighteousness, but because he made provisions for his future. Though he will no longer be in a position to administer the blessings from God, he can still be a partaker of those blessings.

Out of the £131 million assets of the couple, Beverley has got £48 million, including £8 million in property previously in her name. John has been arguing that his offer of £20 million was good enough. Another couple battling out a lesser stake are Melissa and Alan Miller, with the former having won an award of £5 million out of a fortune of £17.5 million after three years of marriage. Meanwhile, the impending divorce of Heather Mills and Sir John McCartney is rumoured to hold a £200 million treasure trove for the Beatles wife. Television star Chris Tarrant had an adulterous affair at 60, accepted the blame of breaking up his 15-year-old marriage, and felt that the £10 million property plus £5 million alimony paid to his wife was well deserved by him. On the other hand, Kenneth McFarlane is deeply unhappy about handing out £250,000 per year for the rest of his wife Julias life, though he admits cheating her while she remained loyal.
Unfortunately, most women cant bag a business magnet, media tycoon or sports star. The average settlement in the UK is about £13,000 for women. 70% of the women being divorced are missing out on pension benefits. Most of them undergo a dire financial strain, and come out worse off. Many women give up work for the sake of raising a family after marriage. According to a recent survey, if a person marries at 25, leaves the job for the sake of family and rejoins at 45 post-divorce, then an income hike of £20,000 to £120,000 would be missed. Women face difficulties when returning to a career after a failed marriage, and this is the average. The derivation is very obvious. Unless a woman can bag a millionaire, there is no hope for her to look upon divorce as lucrative. The average woman in the UK is still a loser through both death and divorce of the spouse. Lone mothers struggling with their children are not good material for media hype, but they are the common picture of divorced and widowed women, and the millionaire club is only a minority.
