The Wise Woman with Faith

Mat 15:22-28 The Story of the Canaanite woman.
Most people thought that Jesus was being rude to the woman. Some think that Jesus said those things to trigger faith in her.
I think that Jesus was just telling the truth. He was sent at that time to the lost of Israel and he could do nothing for the outsiders (called dogs by the Jews then ). The woman was smart and persistent enough to extend the promise of God so that she could benefit from it. Her faith and reasoning were so good that the demon has no ground to accuse God of being unfair.
Here we have a person who is outside the blessings of God, not suppose to have the rights, and yet gain her blessings. Many of us have so much promises from God and yet we fail to enjoy those blessings and rights that Jesus Christ has obtained for us.
