How can we relate to the parable of the Unjust Judge? Or should it be named the parable of the persistent widow? Well one story that is quite well known is the story behind the Song “United Breaks Guitars”. It is the story of one man’s struggle against a giant corporation to get them to own up to their responsibility in the destruction of his Taylor guitar. Dave Carroll did not give up in his fight against the airline after 9 months of his complaint going nowhere and he finally wrote a song and made a video that has had over 19 million views since 2009. His story demonstrates persistence, the same persistence that the widow showed against the unjust judge. God wants us to bring our cries for justice to Him with the same persistence. Only our God cares most deeply about justice and people.
