Is there a passage or image in scripture that carries special particular meaning for you?
I love the story in Mark Chapter 7 of the Greek woman who begs Jesus to cleanse her daughter of the devil. Jesus, tired and wanting to be alone with his disciples, responds, “Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.” The woman answers, “Yes Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.” Jesus marvels at her faith and her persistence and cleanses her daughter of the devil. It’s a great story about the dynamics of faith and the strength of a mother’s petition that is grounded in both humility and love.
