Proper 15

What do you feed your dog? His own special food? Table scraps? Or maybe your dog is a canine vacuum cleaner gobbling up anything that touches the floor under your table.

Your canine vacuum doesn’t deserve to eat those crumbs. It happens to be one of the benefits of being in your household. Some days he reaps greater rewards than others. But none the less, his presence in your house is of tasty benefit to him.

This is the understanding of a woman who approaches Jesus to heal her daughter. She trusted that even the food that fell from the Master’s table was enough to sustain her.

Jesus then said to this woman something He never said to even His chosen disciples: “Great is your faith!”

Great is the faith of those who trust in Jesus’ undeserved care.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
