Scripture: Matthew 15:21-28

 

It sounds a bit sacrilegious to say Jesus was having a bad day when he met the Canaanite woman…let’s just say he was not at his best.

When the “woman” (that’s code for vulnerable and worthless) pleads with Jesus to help her daughter who is tormented by a demon, Jesus compares the woman to a dog.

Really?

The tables turn and she teaches Jesus a lesson about boundaries and barriers and what it means to be a blessed child of God.

Maybe we all need a refresher course, now and then.

Thankful for this community of learning and compassion,
