Matthew 15:29-31

Now this is incredible. Jesus is hanging out healing people. Verse 31 says "The crowd was amazed...and they praised the God of Israel for this."
Did you catch that? They praised the God of Israel. Not Jesus. They praised God because of what Jesus did. How amazing is that. Jesus, who is God in the flesh, wanted to make sure that God got all the glory for the miracles that he performed.
Then there's me. I like to try to take the credit for anything that I do. If somebody appreciates or compliments my work or effort, I'm right there with a thank you and an explanation of how I did it. Why don't I just say thank you and let them know that it's God who gave me the gifts. Or that I love being able to worship God by doing it.
Jesus is amazing. JM
