In the Word
How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you (Psalm 31:19).
Of the Word
Jesus exudes goodness. In His goodness He took the punishment for our sins, paying for them with His life on Calvary’s cross. He continues to give His good gifts of salvation and the hope for eternal life to each believer in Him.
Our Father in heaven is good to us. He fills our lives to overflowing with blessings — both physical and spiritual — which sustain our life on earth. We can sing with joy and gratitude, “God is so good, He’s so good to me!” That joyful refrain is ours on earth and through eternity.
Everything good comes from God. In turn, parents are good to their children by providing what they need for a full life. They are especially good to their children when they share the knowledge of God that leads to eternal life in heaven.
Stretch your faith-filled parenting: Have daily devotions and read God’s Word with your child, learning together of God’s goodness.
Walking with my Lord
Good and gracious Lord, I see Your goodness poured out as You sacrificed Yourself for me on the cross. Help me to share Your goodness with others. In Your name I pray. Amen.
