I WAS SENT

Matthew 15:24 “He answered, I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”
A Canaanite woman asked Jesus to cast out a demon from her daughter. His disciples wanted Him to send the woman away.
Jesus remained silent but then said he’d come to the lost sheep of Israel.
The disciples appeared to have no compassion for the woman or her daughter.
It’s kind of like us sometimes. We can get so caught up with Christian “stuff” we miss genuine needs all around us.
