Deserved?

DAILY DOSE

But she answered him, “Yes, Lord; yet even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”

Mark 7:28

 

DEVOTION

How assertive are you in your faith? The woman who spoke these words to Jesus realized she was a gentile, yet she was asking for the privileges of a Jew. She was saying, “I deserve this, not for my righteousness, but because you are good.” We as humans are certainly not deserving of God’s favor, but God chose to show us His grace because of His love for us.
