Luke 18: 1-8 “…I will grant her justice…”
Parables were told by Jesus to give us some insight into the Kingdom through earthly stories. Here we have a story of a corrupt judge and a widow woman, who wants justice. The judge sells is “decisions” to the highest bidder. We don’t know the case, it’s not important, what we do know is that the women was cheated out of justice by a corrupt judge. So, she does the only thing she can do. Every day she comes to the courthouse asking the judge for justice. Every day, five days a week, fifty-two weeks a year. Finally, the judge says, “No amount of bribery is worth putting up with this woman. I will give her justice just so she will leave me alone.” Jesus concludes by saying, “If a corrupt judge finally gives a woman what she deserves, how much more will a loving God give you what you need.” Amen.
