Parables – The Persistent Widow

Luke 18:1-8 (HCSB)
He then told them a parable on the need for them to pray always and not become
discouraged: 2 “There was a judge in a certain town who didn’t fear God or respect man.
3 And a widow in that town kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me justice against my
adversary.’
4 “For a while he was unwilling, but later he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear
God or respect man, 5 yet because this widow keeps pestering me, I will give her justice,
so she doesn’t wear me out by her persistent coming.’”
6 Then the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 Will not God grant justice
to His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay to help them? 8 I tell you
that He will swiftly grant them justice. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He
find that faith on earth?”
