Where is the Good?

In this world, now seemingly dominated by evil and hatred all around obviously nobody is out highlighting or making news of the good stuff people are doing. I am so disheartened with all the sights and sounds of the world!

I can almost feel what King David would have probably been going through. Where was anything good around him? He writes a comparison of how he felt when he was struggling for that ray of light when despair and trouble loomed.

Psalm 36:1-4 begins with David almost ranting about the twisted mind of a person who has completely pushed God out of his life. The clear repercussions of throwing God out of your life is that it makes you vulnerable to attacks from evil. Life can just become a black-hole that draws evil in every form. Where there is no light, darkness will take over.

When we invite God into our life, we are inviting Light (1 John 1:5) and Love (1 John 4:8). The two best things in life!

 Let us soak in the goodness of our Living God in the following verses that David declares in Psalm 36:5-9

5Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
    your justice like the ocean depths.
You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.
    How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter
    in the shadow of your wings.
You feed them from the abundance of your own house,
    letting them drink from your river of delights.
For you are the fountain of life,
    the light by which we see.
