A truer thing has never been said
Praising God, telling God and others how wonderful he is, when I am doing that, I am being more honest and truthful than at any other time that I speak.
When I say God is good I am speaking the truth. He is the good -est. there is no person place or thing good – er than Him. He is loving, compassionate, merciful, forgiving, slow to anger.
Psalm 103 says that his love for us is higher than than heavens and that when he forgives us, he removes our sins as far as the East is from the west.
To tell the truth, the truth is God is good. Life sometimes both sucks as blows and God is still good. God is holy, which in one sense of the word means “other”. Everything else in creation is creation. All made by Him. Since God is not part of creation he is not tainted by the mess we are in and yet he cares deeply about the mess we are in and about us, as a whole, but more importantly, as individuals.
John 3:16-17 talks about the world and then the individual. Let’s give it a read.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
