Goodness is…

Good morning, dearest reader! Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit with me. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated!

This month’s theme is goodness! How do you describe goodness?

Webster defines goodness as the state or quality of being good. The words kindness, generosity, benevolence are added to the list. And finally, we read the best part, essence, or valuable element of a thing.

When we think of goodness, we may be tempted to look upon our temporal blessings. Unfortunately, the danger in that is our perspective in the seasons of want, despair, and loss. For example, in the good times we praise Him, and in the bad times, we complain.

I’m ashamed to admit it, but I’ve been guilty of this very thing. 😦

Yet the Lord’s goodness should never be measured by our physical circumstances. He is good all the time!

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8

The writer states it very well in the video! Enjoy!

 

Reflection:

How has God been good to you? Have you in turn shown that goodness to others?

  1. Of course I’m blessed to have you, dear Gail, as my friend! I also think I’ve had several financial blessings lately because I joined Compassion International where I support two children in Brazil and Africa. We send letters back and forth, too. They are blessing my life so much! You can’t outgive God, don’t you agree? ❤️

  2. Great post with much food for thought! I especially liked: “When we think of goodness, we may be tempted to look upon our temporal blessings.” I’m afraid we are often tempted to think that way. Thanks, Gail!
