MAIN TEXT: 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.
Mark 10:18 – No one is good but One, that is, God.
The goodness of God is one of the attributes of God, as well as a description of His very essence. God, by nature, is inherently good, as Psalm 34:8 tells us: “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” He is the foundation of goodness and of everything good—He did not obtain it from another source. People can have good traits or do good deeds, but goodness comes from God.
With so much evidence of God’s love, kindness, peace, strength, provision, and so much more, we can clearly see that God is indeed good. In fact, He’s not just good. He is so good!
God is so good; He is abundant in mercy.
Finally, God’s mercy flows from His goodness. The Lord would still be good even if He never showed mercy, for mercy is not obligated (Rom. 9:14–24). Yet in His mercy to us, we see that He has purposed to be good in a special way to His people.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME; ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD
