The Persistent Widow

Persistence is a key ingredient to a happy and meaningful life. If you want a happy marriage, to be a good athlete, musician, business owner, small group leader at church ...you name it--all of it requires a great deal of persistence. We understand that concept in our everyday lives, but oftentimes miss it in our spiritual lives. Jesus tells a parable highlighting 2 main characters; an evil judge and a persistent widow. As we get a window into their interaction, Jesus paints us a picture of how He intends for us to interact with God. We learn incredible truths like the importance of remembering who God is when we pray. Jesus reminds us to remember who we are, as chosen and beloved children of the Father, when we pray. We see that persistent prayer activates divine action. Jesus is looking faithful, relentless people who know their Father and refuse to lose heart in their relationship with Him! Jesus explains this parable right before he tells it, and gives us some great practical application--your Father loves you, so pray a lot and never lose heart!
