All Good Things Come from God
Adventure 3: The Goodness of God
Who gives us all good things?
God gives us all good things. Psalm 84:11 – For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
This Truth Makes
If we thought that good came from us, we would not think we needed God. If we believed that good came from somewhere else besides God, then we would probably trust and worship whatever it was that we thought might give us the good.
Perhaps you have spent time on a project for school and, when you were done, you got a good grade. Why did you get that good grade? What did it mean? Basically, that good grade meant that you earned the approval of your teacher. Something that is good is approved and worthy of honor.
God is always worthy of honor because He is perfectly good, and all that is good flows from Him. Since God is the absolute best Good, no good originates from any other person besides God. All good things come from God!
James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
