Reflections for 10-20-2013

Luke 18:1–8
“Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart.”

The persistent widow in this scripture did not give up. She ontinually demanded justice from the unjust judge. And despite the judge’s hardened heart, the widow “wore him out”; she endured. We don’t know the specific situation of the widow’s
case for justice, but we can all probably quickly cite examples of injustice that we see in the world around us. But we can’t forget: God’s justice is always with us.

Something to think about, talk about, or do: 

  • This week think of a situation that’s in need of justice today.
  • Take action that will help bring about justice in that situation – maybe in writing a letter or placing a phone call to an elected official, joining in a march or protest, or praying for the endurance of the persistent widow.
