Most Christians know the parable of the Persistent Widow. Jesus tells the story of a widow was wronged. Her enemy owed her something, most likely money. She went to court to get justice but a dishonest judge stood in her way. Eventually, the widow gets relief because she continued to press her case until the dishonest judge relented.
Jesus told this parable to remind believers to continue to pray, make requests of God, and seek justice from Him. He said, "Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. 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? I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?" Luke 8:6-8.
When you are wronged, the legal system can seem difficult to navigate. At times it can even seem unfair. In the face of difficult circumstances, however, victims of personal injury accidents and their families must be persistent. It often takes months or even years but being persistent gets you justice.
When you feel like the world is standing against you or the legal system is unjust, remember the Persistent Widow. Be persistent in seeking justice and you will get a just result.
