Even in the house of the Church. Turns out the saints agree.

The readings for the 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time make it clear that God intends to establish His authority on the face of the earth, in the hearts of all mankind so that mankind will come to know Him and accept His invitation to enter into the life of the Most Holy Trinity for all eternity.
In the first reading, God replaces Shebna as the master of the palace and gives that authority to Eliakim. Apparently, there had been mismanagement in the palace, and God didn't want His people to be led astray.
