At first glance, it seems as though Jesus is propagating a scarcity mindset in his encounter with the Syrophoenician woman.
When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?"

Andrew spoke up, "Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far with they go among so many?"
