lessons in the Divine Perogative

with thanks to Art Katz ministry
Ever wonder about the interaction between the woman and Jesus that led to this verse..?

Mat 15:27
And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Jesus wanted to bless this woman, but He also desired an acknowledgement from her that God has the perogative, the right, to be sovereign, to make sovereign choices...typically humans will choose to question God's choice, God's right to choose, this woman took the humble path and stated it as "truth Lord:", and the result of her humility and recognition was a healing for her daughter.... Shall not the judge of all the earth do right.... don't waste time and effort "judging God",
