Did I hear a knock? A poem
Was there someone knocking on my door? I do remember them, they had been here before.
This woman is starting to annoy me, an Attorney with her I did not see, I wish she would stop bugging me.
She comes before me every day with the same complaint, by the way, how can I make her just go away?
I am a Judge who can rule yay or nay but this woman is here to stay, what can I do to keep her out of my way?
Oh, now I see it, now I know, I’ll rule in her favor and then she will go!
But this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests! Luke 18:5 NLT.
Jesus used this example of the unjust Judge ruling for this poor woman who didn’t have an Attorney. He said this to encourage Christians to keep knocking, keep asking through prayer.
Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? Luke 18:7 NLT
