The Goodness of God - 3

What can I say about His Goodness?  I don't think there are words to describe it. I think I'll let the Scriptures describe it for me.

Good and Upright

Psalm 25:8  "Good and upright is the Lord: therefore will He teach sinners in the way."

The Earth is Full

Psalm 33:5  "He loves righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord."

Taste and See

Psalm 34:8  "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him."

A Strong Hold in the Day of Trouble

Nahum 1:7  "The Lord is good; a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knows them that trust in Him."

There is Only One Good

Matthew 19:17  "And He said unto him, Why call thou Me good?  There is none good but One, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments."

Leads to Repentance

Romans 2:4  "Or despise thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads thee to repentance?"

What do you think now about His goodness?  He is good and upright and the earth is full of His goodness.  He has asked us to taste and see for ourselves of His goodness.  He is a stronghold for us and He is the only One who is good and His goodness will lead us to repentance if we allow it to.
Will you allow Him to lead you to repentance?  I am willing and I pray that you are too.  Grandma Joan
