“Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’”
Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:1-8 NKJV)
For the Christian, this parable is a lesson on asking our God and Savior for the things we need and for our protection from Satan and wickedness. Certainly He would like to have our thanks for all He does for us. Regardless, we need that constant dialogue to make change in our lives and in the lives of others.
Another lesson for the Christian is in teaching the lost. Never stop trying to teach them. Eventually they too will give in if we have love and compassion in our hearts.
The sinner has learned how to bend this lesson to their own interests too. But instead of petitioning God, they petition those around then and the leaders of government so their wicked lifestyles might be accepted, perhaps even celebrated. Think it is not possible? Look at some of the large cities who celebrate “pride” days. As Isaiah 5:20 says, there will be some who call evil “good” and good “evil”. But they will pay.
Finally, let us remember that the government is in God’s control. He has a plan in the works, even now. But we can intervene with the fall to wickedness and tell those we pay taxes to that we are tired of wickedness and want to see more good, more of what God asks for. So make your requests to God, and then to your leaders.
