The Purpose Of Godís Goodness

When I was growing up, we often sang a song in Sunday school that went like this: ďGod is good to me! God is good to me! He holds my hand and helps me stand! God is good to me!Ē

I need to say right away that I believe God is good and He takes delight in doing good things for people. He does indeed hold our hand in times of trouble and helps us stand against the onslaught of lifeís difficulties. But I wonder if youíve ever asked yourself, Why is He good? It certainly is not because we deserve it or because He feels the need to buy our love and allegiance with His benefits.

The psalmist prays for God to bless him so that ď[the Lordís] way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nationsĒ (Ps. 67:2). Godís daily blessings are proof positive that He is indeed a good God who cares for His own. But how will our world know this about God if we never praise Him for His goodness to us? (v.3).

So, the next time God blesses you, be sure to look for ways to appropriately give Him the credit. Consuming His blessings without communicating His goodness shortchanges the very purpose of His gifts of grace in our lives.





As endless as Godís blessings are,
So should my praises be
For all His daily goodnesses
That flow unceasingly! óAdams





God is goodómake sure the people in your world know what He has done in your life.

Been trying to do just that, funny how it has taken tough times in my life to start looking for ways to help others.
