We go to a restaurant, look at the menu and we begin to hunt. to search. What are we looking for? Ingredients. Elements that get our attention - they engage our minds and our palates, they get the juices in our mouths flowing and they address a deep need. Hunger.
Where is the goodness in our world, apart from what makes us happy or satisfies our physical needs?Where is the goodness in our relationships, apart from getting what we want out of others and not having too much required of us in return?Where is the goodness in our material possessions, apart from the belief that we can never have enough and what we do have must be upgraded?
So goodness is God.Goodness is God's will being done.Goodness is God providing even when we aren't sure He is.Goodness is the breaking sunshine through the windows of abuse and addiction.Goodness is the son of God and the Spirit of God moving ordinary broken folks to extraordinary lives in the real world.
