Read Luke 18:1-8

Read Luke 18:1-8

Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent. ’ For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming. ’” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth


The parable of the unjust Judge is not about how if you bother God enough he will eventually answer you.  It notes that even if an unjust judge will eventually grant justice in response to protest; how much more will God eventually bring Justice to the world.


“Yet, when the son of man comes, will he find faith on earth?”  - Lord help me to be faithful.
