Matthew 15

Matthew 15:27
Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the master’s table.

Greatest comeback line in all the Bible. This Canaanite woman was on her game, wasn’t she? She gets ignored, scorned, slighted, overlooked, and then downright insulted! And, yet, she still has enough pluck to fire back the cleverest response imaginable. Essentially she says, “I’m here, and I will be counted!” Jesus just stands back, and, in awe, commends the outsider for her faith. And she left that day the possessor of a miracle. She came to do business with Jesus. And no amount of scrutiny was going to stand in her way. O Lord, grant us the same boldness to persist in prayer.
