The God of Good Things

"Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart." (Psalm 73:1)

My kids and I have just finished having some savoury pancakes for lunch. They were really good (even though I say so myself - all glory be to God!). It was so satisfying to enjoy good food and see my children enjoy the same. Elizabeth sitting in her high chair, calling out, "Pangake! Pangake! Mowr! Mowr!" The boys eating some pancake and disappearing out to the sandpit to play, then returning again for more. (Mary had her low carb diet because of her PCOS illness, but she had a bite and her eyes lit up!)

God gives us so many good things! How blessed it is to be in God's family and adopted as a son! He provides us with all that we need. How blessed it is to be at peace with Him and able to recognise His goodness toward us! To be filled with joy and able to give thanks.

Thank God we don't dwell in darkness, alienated from Him! May God give us grace to share the Good News of reconciliation with Him with those who are doomed to eternal separation from the blessedness of His presence.

Are we grateful children, showing our love through devotion and obedience, or are we like greedy children, rejoicing in our toys, but ignoring fellowship with our Father?

God is good, but only to the elect or for the sake of the elect if you hold to the prca.

can't get them to see it the way of the puritans and the reformers at all.
