How do you approach God? How do you have a relationship with Him? How can we connect with and be accepted by Him?
The woman in this story approaches God in an entirely different way than the Pharisees that Jesus had just encountered or her peers that surrounded her in Tyre. She approaches Jesus by seeking, asking, and trusting him on the basis of his grace and is accepted. This beautiful story teaches us that Jesus does not accept us based upon who we are but on the basis of who he is.
