Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession.� Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.� He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.� The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!� she said.

HAVE YOU EVER KNOWN A PERSON WHOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CHARACTER COULD BE SUMMED UP IN 4 WORDS? In verse 28 of our Scripture passage, Jesus said to a Gentile mother: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have great faith.â&#x20AC;? She was a Canaanite woman who came from the country north of Palestineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a country hostile to the Jewsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and she was presumably married. She had at least one child, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all we know about her. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know her name! All we know is that in her single encounter with Jesus, He said to her, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have great faith.â&#x20AC;? Only 4 words, but they were enough to enshrine her as one of the greatest mothers of all time! And these 4 words tell us everything we need to know, and we can trust them because they were spoken by Jesus. Amen? JESUS IS AN EXPERT ON FAITH. The Bible tells us that He searched for it as a gem collector searches for fine jewels, and when He found it He was filled with joy. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always find it in His disciples. Not once did He say to Peter, John, or James, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have great faith.â&#x20AC;? But He said it to this nameless mother from outside the house of Israel! Thursdays 5-9pm

PRESSURE FOR MOMS IS REALLY NOTHING NEW. Eve was blamed for original sin and she had one son who killed his brother. Hagar, Abrahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handmaiden, had a son by him. She was sent away by Abraham with her boy, Ishmaelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and they almost died in the desert. Jochebed was the mother of Moses; Egyptians were killing all male Hebrew babies to curb population; placed Moses in a basket and let it lose on the river. Mary, mother of Jesus: no room for her in the Inn; had top flee to Egypt to escape Herodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrath; Jesus was missing; His trial and crucifixion. Mother in out text: she had a daughter who was demon-possessed. Daughter Dinner Family Flowers Gift


A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday school presentation. His mother was in the front row to prompt him. She gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. Her sonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; memory went blank. Finally, she leaned forward and whispered the cue, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am the light of the world.â&#x20AC;? The boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face lit up and with great feeling and a loud and clear voice he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother is the light of the world.â&#x20AC;?

PRESSURES ON MOM TODAY are greater than ever. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be the toughest job in the world. Just think of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected of her in our success-driven society: Have a successful career, keep the house spotless, raise perfect children, be a great cook, look like a model, be a charming hostess and conversationalist, as well as be a coach, psychologist, teacher, friend, disciplinarian, etcâ&#x20AC;Ś
