Jesus did not want to do miracles outside of Israel, yet the woman`s faith and persistence led to healing. What do you learn from this?
That Jesus came to the whole world, Jew and Greek alike. We must all have faith in order to become a part of God`s Family.

I learn from this lesson that the greek woman had a high faith end trust to jesus, desame story with the centurion man and his servant, even they are not jews or people of israel they do believed to jesus christ as a son of god and the loved of our lord jesus christ is for all mankind, not only for jews or christians or catholics and orthodox but for all the people of the world even with a different religions, if we believed to him and have faith and trust as our saviour he will grant us a salvation.

This is why Jesus healed a womans child who was outside of Israel.
Jesus was not going to heal anyone outside Isreal for a reason and its revealed through many parts of the gospel but done best through this beautiful parablesk (I may have just made up a word there, but it means like a parable) answer to the womans' question in this very story; "First let the children eat all they want, for it is not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to the dogs" "The children" in this metaphor are the Jews of Israel "Gods chosen children" and the food is of course is Jesus(his works, ministry and teachings"this bread is my flesh...this wine is my blood" for "no man can live on bread alone"). The "dogs" are everyone else.  Jesus was not going to heal this womans child originally he told her no and called her, Syrians, phoenicians and all others dogs. Most people would scoff at the statement or even be outraged enough to kill Jesus, like the Pharisees and the Saudicees  but instead she showed her faith by humbling herself in the presence of the Lord, saying "Yes lord, but even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs" she called herself a dog that still needs the Lord despite her not being a chosen person. WHICH IS THE POINT OF CHRISTIANITY               WE ALL MUST HAVE FAITH LIKE CHRIST, like this womans answer. And I did not site my quotes but I assure you they are right out of the bible, look them up if you wish but putting faith in someone who is not just yourself is when you can witness a glimmer of Jesus peeping into our everyday lives. Have faith friends the Lords plan is flawless. God bless.

That the cries of our heart never go unheard. The more we crave His help the stronger the Faith. Pleading for help humbly conscious of our weakness - not demanding to be let in with shoutings and heavy knockings on the Door ''pride''. Pleading to be helped, raised back on our feet and helped along toward that Kingdom where Jesus prepared a room for each of us. One day.

faith is the most important thing before asking to God to do something..our faith makes us get what we ask to.

The reason why Jesus heals the woman`s daughter is because Jesus is compassionate towards us. Jesus wants to care for us since we had faith in Him. I learned that having faith, we can moved even the mountains.

The real faith
Jesus came to this world for the deliverance of the whole mankind. Those who begged Jesus were got the miracle also. Here Jesus wanted to testify her by responding in this way. With persistence and faith that Greek lady the lady answering to Jesus. She believed in Jesus and got the miracle. The lesson we can learn from this passage is that Jesus is honouring our faith.

The Faith of a Syrophoenician Woman

From there he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house, and didn't want anyone to know it, but he couldn't escape notice. For a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down at his feet. Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by race. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
But she answered him, "Yes, Lord. Yet even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs."
He said to her, "For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter."
She went away to her house, and found the child having been laid on the bed, with the demon gone out.
