One of the first things parents tell their children is to be good. As children grow up, their parents tell them over and over again to be good. But, what does it mean to be good?
Sometimes being good means doing what is right. Often, being good means doing something extra. And other times, being good means doing a job well.
But the goodness that God gives us is different. God’s goodness is His blessings that we can share with others. Verse 5b of our Bible Reading says, “to your faith add goodness.” We want to tell other people about our faith in God. But if we also share God’s blessings with them, we show them God’s love and greatness.
God works in our lives every day. He changes us to become better servants for Him. And He helps us share His goodness with others.
