The Goodness of God
God is Good
God’s goodness is that he is the perfect sum, source, and standard (for himself and his creatures) of that which is wholesome (conducive to well-being), virtuous, beneficial, and beautiful.
Scriptural Evidence. The goodness of God is visible in the following evidence from the Bible:
1. There is no one good except God (Matt. 5:48; Mark 10:18; Luke 18:19).
2. All creatures are called to praise his goodness (1 Chron. 16:34; 2 Chron. 5:13; Pss. 106:1; 107:1; 118:1; 136:1; Jer. 33:11).
3. People are urged to trust in the Lord and discover that he is good (Ps. 34:8).
