Just a Crumb
Scripture Reading: Mark 7:24-30 “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” Mark 7:28 Jesus traveled to an area outside of where his own people, the Jews, lived. And a woman came to him to ask for healing for her daughter. This woman, whose little girl was possessed by an impure spirit, came to Jesus with no credentials and no sense of entitlement. She was not looking for a reward or to make a point about worthiness. She came simply as someone who needed help, and she begged Jesus for what he had to offer. As we reflect on this story, we might well appreciate that Jesus sent no one away empty except people who were full of themselves. This woman knew she was not privileged to be born as one of God’s chosen people, the Jews. But somehow, with the help of God’s Spirit, she knew that God cared for her and her daughter. So she had faith that Jesus could make her daughter well. She didn’t expect to have special treatment. She wasn’t asking for a full loaf of God’s sustaining blessing; she knew that just a crumb would be enough. Are we willing to humble ourselves before Jesus and to ask for whatever he has for us? In this story it is not about privilege or degrees of holiness, but simply that people who humbly come to Jesus find that they receive and are satisfied. The impure spirit is gone! Thanks be to you, Jesus! Accept my humble plea and come to my assistance, for I am needy, and you are the bread of life. Amen.

EP. 27: Taste And See (with Margaret Feinberg)
Show Summary: God could have designed humans to eat rocks, but instead He created food and gave men and women thousands of taste buds to enjoy it. On this episode of “God Hears Her,” Margaret Feinberg joins the show to talk food, which is really a discussion into the deepest longings of a woman’s heart, and God’s invitation to taste and see that He is good. About Our Guest: Margaret Feinberg is a podcaster on The Joycast, a speaker, and an author of several books that have sold over a million copies. She was recently named one of Christianity Today’s top 50 women shaping culture and the church. She lives in Utah with her husband, Leif, and their super-pup Hershey. Her recent book is Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers and Fresh Food Markets. Notes and Quotes: * "Food is God’s love made edible." * "God creates the garden with a plethora of food and then gives us thousands of taste buds to enjoy it." * "What we really ache for is to know and be known, to love and be loved, and to enter a place where we can be vulnerable and any sense of shame scurries away." * "Communities are little mirrors that reflect ourselves back to us." * "There are times when I need, through prayer and Scripture, to hear God’s love for me. And there are other times, for that to really take root, I need to hear it through other humans who are reflecting His glory and His presence." * "Social media is a dangerous game because it begins to feel like 'life.' But when words come from a person, in person, they are more meaningful and life-changing." * "If you want to have community, you have to build it, often out of nothing." * "If we want to be seen, we may have to open our eyes and see first. If we want to be heard, we have to become people who are really great listeners." * "The deepest hungers of your heart are uniquely designed to be met first and foremost by God. Jesus really is the One who can speak the syllables you most need to hear." * "Reach out to meet others’ needs; and as you love them and bring joy to them, you’ll find some of your needs met too." * "Choose good people: life-giving, Jesus-loving, makes-you-laugh-until-tears-run-down- your-cheeks-and-other-places kind of people."
