When Jesus healed a Gentile woman it taught us a really important lesson on humility!

Key Points:

  • One day, a Gentile woman asked Jesus for help. Matthew 15:21-22
  • At first, Jesus said his job wasn’t to help people like her.
  • The woman humbled herself instead of demanding her own way. Matthew 15:24-28
  • When we stay humble before God, he will lift us up.

Memory Verse:

James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.

Talk About It
  1. What’s your favorite part of the video? What’s one thing you learned from it?
  2. How do you typically react when your parents say “No” to something you want?
  3. Who were the Gentiles? Why was it weird for the Gentile woman to talk to Jesus?
  4. What made Jesus want to heal the woman’s daughter?
  5. Read Psalm 37:3-5. To delight in God means to love him with your whole heart. When God is your first priority, how will that change your prayer requests?
  6. How will you apply this lesson to your life this week?
