God Is Good ~

Today God blessed me with a beautiful bird. The Carolina Wren and it sang beautifully. Did you know that the Carolina wren has been reported to sing up to 3000 times in one day. That is amazing. But, really it's just God. And it got me thinking.

~God is good. ~

Yet the word good really doesn't seem like a word that would adequately describe God. But, in the Bible it says God is Good. In fact, Jesus said it Himself.

And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18 NAS

Good just seems like a very small word. So I looked it up. I couldn't believe how lengthy the definition was. I picked a few and you can look at the rest.

Morally excellent; virtuous; righteous; pious: a good man.
Of high quality; excellent.
Kind, beneficent, or friendly: to do a good deed.
Genuine; not counterfeit: a good quarter.
Reliable; dependable; responsible: good advice.
Excellence or merit; kindness: to do good.
Moral righteousness; virtue: to be a power for good.
Informal. - The genuine article.
The good, a. the ideal of goodness or morality.
Good things or persons collectively.

—Synonyms 1. pure, moral, conscientious, meritorious, worthy, exemplary, upright. 2. Commendable, admirable. 5. Obedient, heedful. 6. Kindly, benevolent, humane, gracious, obliging. 23. Full, adequate. 24. Profitable, useful, serviceable, beneficial. 25. Efficient, proficient, capable, able, ready, suited, suitable, dexterous, expert, adroit, apt. 46. See property.

I guess it's not that small of a word at all. And, here's something else to ponder ~

The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the person who seeks Him. Lamentations 3:25

My prayer is that it's apart of our everyday walk. But, not just to seek Him but to have a real relationship with Him.

I wished I had found my picture; but, for more on the Carolina Wren -
