Moms Without Medals - Mother's day (Matthew 15:21-28)Bo Grace, May 8, 2016
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
The Bible has much to say about motherhood, and there are many examples of great mothers. If you have been in church very long, you have probably heard Mother’s Day messages about Hannah, Mary, Eunice, Lois, and so many more. Today we will look into the life of a woman whose name we do not know. She is simply referred to as the “Syrophonecian Woman.” There are lessons for all of us in her story because the real story is about Jesus!

21Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. 22And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. 27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. 28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. (KJV)
