Ps 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.

Ps 86:5 For Thou, Lord art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.

In these two verses, (there are many more), God's goodness is praised. He is not only good in general, but He is good to us.

Ps 145:9 The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are all over His works.

Rom 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

His goodness helps us to find repentance, which leads us to salvation.

For us, goodness involves right or "good" behavior. It appears as kindness sometimes. It avoids evil.

The choice between good and evil has been around since the Garden of Eden.

Is 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Mt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

What will you choose moment by moment today? Good or evil? If you really think about it you will see that it really is a moment by moment decision. Every choice you make has a chance to choose good or evil.

Lord help us to choose only good.
