Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1 ESV
Our God is good! read what Jesus says about God’s goodness; And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18 ESV The significance of what Jesus says here is humbling to say the least. Only God is good. No matter how good we think we are as individuals or how good we think someone else is, only God is truly good.
It is out of His goodness that He created and continues to care for us. We are unworthy, yet He loves us above all creation. He loves us with a love that was there before He created mankind and will continue into eternity. His love is never ending.
Human love is for a lifetime at best, but God’s love is an enduring love. His love has no boundaries. Remember what the Apostle Paul said; but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 ESV God sent His Son to die for sinners, not good people. That is the kind of love our God has for us.
So today, let’s give thanks for our good and loving God. Let’s also help someone else to see how wonderful a God, we serve.
