The thing that hit me here was the Pharisees and their need to put on good front while their hearts were far from God. And Jesus' assertion that it is not what we put into our bodies that defile us but what comes out. Too often I struggle with a quick temper.
I admire the Gentile woman who understood that Jesus came for the Jews, and seemed not to be offended at being called a dog, but still made her point that even the dogs got the crumbs off the floor. Such an example of faith.
