Senior Pastor David Ball tackles another perplexing story in this message from Luke. This parable seems to commend the behavior of one very rude man. This is the guy who realizes he doesn't have enough food on hand for a late-arriving guest and wakes his neighbor to demand that he loan him the food he needs. His neighbor refuses and the rude man gets even ruder. And it works!!! He gets what he wants. Not much of a role model, one would think. But David explains why the story isn't as convoluted as it seems.
