The Trust Test

Can God Trust Me?

Luke 16:1-13

Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.
1 Corinthians 4:2


  • Luke 15 is all about correcting our wrong attitudes about People.
  • Luke 16 is all about our wrong attitudes about Possessions.


Point of Luke 15 and 16:
When we have a wrong attitude toward possessions it will negatively affect people.

  1. The ACCOUNTABILITY of the Trustee
    God is the Owner; I am a Trustee.
              See v2

I am accountable for:
My LIFE  see Hebrews 9:27
My TIME  see Ephesians 5:15
My POSSESSIONS  see Luke 14:33

  1. The ACTION of the Trustee
    See v 4-7
         The shrewd steward is not praised for his dishonesty,
         but for Immediate Resourcefulness.

Three Lessons:

#1: My trust is Proven in the PRESENT
Matthew 6:19-20, “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.”              

#2: My trust is EARNED, gradually
v10a; “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.

#3: Trust can be MEASURED
v13, “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

Final Thought:                     God longs to trust us 100%, He requires us to trust Him 100%.
