This is a story about a microwave; a microwave that we use where I live.
I woke up this morning to make breakfast which involved making use of the microwave. As it’s a Sunday morning, I was juggling a lot of things: food, prepare for Church, etc, so I left the food in the microwave and went about other things.
In 2mins, it was done and as with every microwave, it gave the beeping sound (5 beeps). I wasn’t ready to go get it so I just ignored. One minute later, 5 beeps again. Another minute later, a 3rd round of 5 beeps! No way! Even if I wasn’t ready to go get it, just to keep that microwave quiet, I went to attend to it.
Does this remind you of any story in the Bible? It does- The widow and the judge in Luke 18:2-5. It’s a story about persistence in prayer. Don’t give up on that request, your persistence would pay off.
Food for thought:
How do you balance persistence with faith since faith believes it has it when it asks?
Luke 18:1 “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.”
