There Would Be No Good Without God
Construction Zone 3: The Goodness of God
Who gives us all good things?
God gives us all good things. Psalm 84:11b – No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
This Truth Makes
Maybe you have worked very hard on some papers at school, and, when you were done, you got a good grade. Why did you get that good grade? What did it mean? That good grade meant that you earned the approval of your teacher. Your teacher is pleased and wants to honor you with a good grade. If something is “good,” that means it is “approved” and “worthy of honor.”
God has already proven that He is worthy of honor – He is perfectly good! Since God is totally good, only good things come from Him! We can be confident that God will continue to be good and do good forever, because He never changes. 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.
