Topic: God Is Good
Today’s Scripture: Psalm 100
Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth.
Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations.

One of the first things a child learns in Sunday school is that God is good. But the simplicity of this statement can be a bit misleading. That’s because God’s goodness is multifaceted, and it encompasses many of His characteristics.
First, the Lord is absolutely perfect and holy, which means that He alone is the standard of all righteousness. God is also unchanging, and therefore His dealings with us are determined by His character; even when we rebel, He is still good to us. As a loving heavenly Father, He responds with discipline—not to crush out spirit but to restore the broken relationship.
We can see the Lord’s goodness in His gifts to us, including every breath we breathe. As our loving Shepherd, He provides for all our needs. But the greatest expression of God’s goodness is the cross of Christ. What appeared cruel and unfair from man’s perspective was the only way to rescue us from a hopeless eternity without God.
God’s goodness is intertwined with each of His attributes, and that’s why it is a pillar of our faith. It grounds us with confidence during difficulties, so when we don’t understand what the Lord is doing, we can still trust that He is good.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
