Thought of the Week
Faith means that we trust Christ as our Saviour. Just like this Canaanite woman we too can become true children of the kingdom of heaven. We too can become a new vine grafted onto the old root. This Canaanite woman demonstrates to us that we are never beyond God’s love. We never beyond salvation and we are most certainly never beyond forgiveness. But faith also means we follow Christ. As the chosen ones we need to live a Godly life and the Godly life is this: first, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might and, secondly, to love neighbour as yourself. You show love to neighbour through your works to neighbour and through those works you manifest love to God.
