    Insight777: This is just to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26NIV. "It's not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to their dogs."CHILDREN meansJews. BREAD means the word of God. DOGS means.Gentiles."We" were/are considered unclean to Jews..Jesus wasn't calling her a dog,being mean.He talked to her in a way she could understand.With her answer he was moved,and so healed.

    Im just trying to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26 NIV "It is not right to take the childrens(Jews) bread (Word of God)and toss it to their dogs." (Gentiles) 24:" I have only been sent to the lost sheep of Israel." He was trying to save HIS "lost sheep" first. When the woman gave her reply,jesus found favor in her and healed her daughter. God is good.

    I have no option than to love Him with all my heart because He first love me.
  • Insight777
    Jesus referred to dogs because dogs faithfully follow their master regardless of what their master thinks. Some masters take advantage of dogs loyalty, these dog fighters beat the dogs until they learn to fight, to death so that they can turn a profit from the fight. Jesus knew that the woman asking for help was not his follower, her beliefs were not what Jesus taught yet she converted to truth.

    Jo Ann, talk to the Holy Ghost and ask for clarity of scriptures. We are told to do so. And He will show you the word. He will not put you down for your lack of understanding but will lift you up. He is our Comforter.
