GOD IS … GOOD

DAY 12
GOD IS GOOD
The goodness of God means that God is the final standard of good, and that all that God is and does is worthy of approval. There is no higher standard of goodness than God’s own character and his approval of whatever is consistent with that character. He is therefor also the ultimate source of all goodness. In imitation of this communicable attribute, we should ourselves do good (that is, we should do what God approves) and thereby imitate the goodness of our heavenly Father. Moreover, when we realize that God is the definition and source of all good, we will realize that God himself is the ultimate good that we seek. God’s goodness is closely related to several other characteristics of his nature, among them love, mercy, patience, and grace.
