Shebna was the steward “in charge of the house,” likely the house of King Hezekiah. His position was second only to the king, and much was expected of him.
Shebna should have cared for the needs of Jehovah’s people
He selfishly pursued glory for himself
Jehovah replaced Shebna with Eliakim
Eliakim was given “the key of the house of David,” which symbolized power and authority
Consider: How could Shebna have used his authority to help others?
