Why do we only say “God is good” when things happen that make us happy or comfortable? Is God not good when things happen that make us unhappy or uncomfortable?
Do we also say, “God is good!” when unpleasant things happen? If not, do our words train us (and others) to view God’s goodness as measured by comfort and pleasure in this life?
Interesting timing. I was going through old emails the other day and saw my old signature tacked onto the end- “God is good even when the situation isn’t”. I do not use a signature now as I never figured how to add one with our newest email program.
That’s excellent, I’ll remember that. 🙂
