There’s an old story in the Bible book of Luke:
There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
We’re certainly not suggesting that our local judges are dishonest. But the lesson is about dogged persistence. It worked then and, in our experience, it does yet today.
