The story was the parable Jesus told about the persistent widow and the unjust judge. In case you missed that day in Sunday School, here's the text:
Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, ‘In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, “Grant me justice against my opponent.” For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, “Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.”’ And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?’
From The New Revised Standard Version
This parable always intriqued me as a child. Did I just have to be ultra-persistent to get what I wanted? Thinking about it last night in light of my current life situation, I wondered what Someone was trying to tell me. If I am persistent enough in my pleadings, will God grant me a child just for the asking? How persistent would I have to be? How long would it take?
I decided last night that I can be pretty stubborn when I set my mind to it. So, if the message was from God, I say, Okay God. Let's see who can be more persistent: You withholding a child or me asking for a child.
I'll let you know who wins.
