The Syrian Woman

Mark 7:24-26 (NIV)
Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. [25] In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an evil spirit came and fell at his feet. [26] The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.

This mama is one of my favorite people ever.

She was a Canaanite, a Syrian, a descendant of the mysterious Sea Peoples, but more than all that, she was a kick-butt mother.

Why?

She traveled to see Jesus. She took the time to find him and then she…

begged

She had no pride when it came to her beautiful daughter.

She knew what was priceless
And so did he.
