I’m not worthy but…

Matthew 15:26 And he answered, It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.27 She said, Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.

This woman displayed such great tenacity.  She wasn’t part of Jesus’ target audience.  As a Gentile woman she wouldn’t by rights expect a religious Jew to talk to her.  Yet she approached Jesus, not out of a sense of entitlement, but out of desperation and acknowledgement that only He could help her.  She came humbly, lowering herself, but yet never letting her request drop.

Lord, anything You give me is a bonus.  I don’t deserve any of it and have no right to ever ask You for anything.  And yet You invite me to bring my requests to You.  May I always do so humbly, grateful that I’m even able to approach You.
