Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand.

-Isaiah 56:1

In Matthew 15, a woman keep pursuing justice – healing for her daughter.  She will not let the disciples stand in her way. She speaks boldly to Jesus and makes it clear that she won’t take no for an answer. And in response to her persistent intervention for someone she loved, her request was granted. Her faith was recognized.

While this passage is difficult to understand in places, it’s very inspiring too.
