God is Good
------- Everything that God created was good -------
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
------- It is because of sin that things changed -------
Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
------- But God never changes -------
For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
------- And the earth is still full of his goodness -------
He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
------- Every good thing comes from God -------
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?
I Corinthians 4:7
------- And God can work all things together for good -------
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
------- God's goodness draws us to him -------
And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
------- God is good -------
Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
O taste and see that the LORD is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
