Some of the words that define the term, “good,” are high-quality, superior, excellent, satisfying, fitting and suitable, kind and generous, skilled, and virtuous. We often look for “good” within our lives. Possibly, a good meal, a good grade, a good place to sleep, a good teacher, a good job, a good book, a good and virtuous person, or a good friend. We like being surrounded by “good.”
But, let’s face it. Every meal we eat may be tasty, but it is not always as “good” as we would like. Not everyone gets a good grade on an assignment or test. How many times have you not had a good night’s sleep due to the environment? I would love to say that “all” teachers are good; but that’s simply not the case. Some people have good jobs with good pay and good bosses, but some have right the opposite. Some books you pick up to read are not good and you put them down as quickly as you picked them up! It’s so nice to meet a good and virtuous person, but unfortunately not everyone we meet is kind, good, or virtuous. So, we look for “good” within our lives.
The Bible even teaches us, “There is none good; no not one. All, like sheep, have gone astray.” So, in one way or the other none of us are always 100%, 100% of the time Good.
But, I have Good News…God is always 100%, 100% of the times GOOD! God is Superior to all we know and could ever know. God is Excellent in all of his ways. God is virtuous, kind, and satisfying to our souls, minds, and hearts. He is skilled in all of his accomplishments and the works of His hands always surpasses high-quality. The Book that he authored is often times called, “The Good Book.” You won’t ever be dissatisfied when reading his Words!
As a child, you were probably taught this simple prayer:
God is Great; God is Good. Let us thank him for our food. By His Hands, we are fed; Thank you Lord for our daily bread. Amen.
So, if you are looking for “good” in your life; I suggest looking unto God, the author and finisher of our faith and lives.
Remember…God is so Good…God is so Good…God is so Good…He’s so Good to me!
I hope you have a blessed and Good Day in the Lord.
Remember, God Loves You!
