Do good, Lord, to those who are good.
The Lord Does Good For Those Who Are Good – Psalm 125:4
Do good, Lord, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
God does not have a reserve tank of goodness that dries up. His goodness never ends; it is constant and boundless. Let that truth settle in for a moment. We live in a world where we cannot always see His goodness. The news is filled with negativity and people harming one another. We are made to do life with people who have destructive behaviors and seek after no good thing. Many of us know good people who have had bad things happen to them. Yes, in this life we seem to have more questions than answers.
But that is why we were given the Bible. God’s Word reminds us of His promises to the faithful. Promises of a good future filled with love, joy and peace. So today, no matter where this finds you, lean into God and His Word. He has promised to lead the upright in heart down the righteous path–the narrow path–because His goodness is unfailing. His love and commitment to you never ends.
“Jesus Christ, I know that You came to save this world and make it whole again. Help us to see Your goodness and light in the middle of muck and darkness. Protect our every step and lead us in the way we should go.”
