It's Day 1 and we're in Matthew 15.There is a little overlap between the two "60IN60" cycles, so we are starting another 60 days because of the way the calendar fell.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 4 - This is a challenging verse for me, because the penalty seems too severe. This is a part of the Word that I will have to keep wrestling with.
- Verses 21-28 - It seems harsh that Jesus declines her request. His mission at this point is exclusively to the lost sheep of Israel. In other words, He's come to try to win back God's people to God. Of course, we know that they will reject Him. But before they do that, He focuses His attention on them. You can't say yes to everything.
