A Look At A Few Parables
Parables are tales that illustrate the character of Father God. Jesus uses the law and the prophets to reveal the beauty and passion of a loving good Father. Luke 11: a friend comes at midnight - reveals that God is amazingly hospitable - you can go visit anytime. Luke 18: the parable of the persistent widow - reveals that God is not unjust, but is there for you and easy to convince to stand on your behalf. The tenacity and persistence of faith is not to convince God to finally come through; it is to remind yourself how good and awesome He is.
