Jesus once went to Tyre and Sidon. He entered into a house, and wanted no one to know it, but he couldn't escape detection. For a woman, whose little daughter had an unclean spirit, having heard of him, came and fell down at his feet. Now the woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician. She begged him that he would cast the demon out of her daughter. But Jesus said to her, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." But she answered him, "Yes, Lord. For even the dogs under the table eat the children's crumbs." He said to her, "For this saying, go your way. The demon has gone out of your daughter."
She went away to her house, and found the child laying on the bed, with the demon gone out.
NOTES: The woman's faith was rewarded. Though Jesus did not answer positively at first, she persisted with her plea. She did not retaliate when Jesus said, "Let the children be filled first, for it is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." She didn't go away depressed either hearing the Master's reply at the onset. She humbled herself and replied wisely, not caring about her status or position in the society. All she desired was a deliverance for her kid and she got it.
