Crumbs of Christ — Bread of Life #1

The Faith of the Canaanite Woman
(Mark 7:24-30)

Matthew 15:21-28

21Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22And a Canaanite woman from that region came to Him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is miserably possessed by a demon.”

23But Jesus did not answer a word. So His disciples came and urged Him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”

24He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

25The woman came and knelt before Him. “Lord, help me!” she said.

26But Jesus replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

27“Yes, Lord,” she said, “even the dogsf eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

28“O woman,” Jesus answered, “your faith is great! Let it be done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

Parable of the Shrewd Manager

Cross Reference. The Parable of the Talents His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master!’ — Matthew 25:23

Management as a service. We are to be servant-leaders just as Jesus was the Good Shepherd [John 10:11]

Be Ready for Service

35 Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning.
36 Then you will be like servants waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks, they can open the door for him at once.
37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds on watch when he returns. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve and will have them recline at the table, and he himself will come and wait on them

Luke 12:35-37

Maranatha

We are entrusted with the wealth of God, His Word, wisdom and teachings, psalms, parables, proverbs, promises and prophecy, as His property managers and temporary stewards, the shepherds of His holy flock, until the day Christ finally returns. Maranatha.

41 Peter asked, “Lord, are you telling this parable to us, or to everyone?”
42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?
43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns.

Luke 12:41-43

Lord, let us be mindful, watchful and faithful for the things that the world considers the littlest and least, the lost and last

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.

If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?

Luke 16

The Sheep and the Goats

40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

Matthew 25:40
