Daily Devotional Luke 18:6-8 – How can we make a society have justice? – The Parable of the Unjust Judge (Part 2) – Online Bible Study – Commentary in easy English – Day 338
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:6-8)
When I was young and expressed my opinions to my father, I felt they didn’t count. It was the wisdom of that time children were to be seen, not heard. My father smoked wherever he wanted and controlled the shows on our one television. Generally, it was his way or the highway. Consequently, I rarely voice my opinions because I don’t think they matter to anyone. Many Christians are like me. We brought up our children caring about what they think, so the younger generations are boisterous about expressing their opinions. Those who are godless and experienced violence in their homes, express violence on the streets.
God cares about our opinions and injustices. Spreading His kingdom of love will result in more people praying for justice. He will answer our prayers. In less than two weeks we will vote for the president we think will unite our country even though it seems obvious no president has the ability to do that. Only God does.
If we pray persistently, wherever we are, according to God’s will, He promises to bring justice. Even the unjust judge brought justice to the widow who bugged him to death. So how much more will God bring justice because He loves us. The question is when we receive justice for ourselves or an answer to our prayers, will we quit praying? Praying is our relationship with God. So, we must never quit praying or doing God’s will. He is our hope.
Father God, thank you for loving and caring for m, and adopting me as your child. Help me remember to pray often wherever I am to do Your will, to love others, and to spread Your kingdom. I know you want a relationship with me and to hear about my needs, the needs of my family and friends, and the needs of humanity and our nation. You are our Almighty Father and our hope. Bring justice to all. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
