Goodness is the act of being good. One definition states it as the act of having moral excellence. At one time when Jesus was on earth someone called Him good, and He said that only the Father is good. This means being good is a very high calling.
The Bible says that we should not get weary of doing good. At times it is easy to be good to someone once or twice but when someone expects to be treated well and when they hardly appreciate then as human beings it’s easy to become weary.
This high calling of being good to people whether they appreciate and recognize or not isn’t very easy. That’s why we need the Spirit of God to help us. Only God is perfect. He has been good to us in ways that we will never get to know m At times He is good to us but we don’t even appreciate instead we start complaining based on our expectations or what we’ve seen Him do for others.
The Bible says that God gives rain to all. He blessed even those who don’t believe in His existence, He loves us even in our ignorance.
This virtue can only be made perfect in us by God. In our nature we may not be able to show goodness around us. That’s what makes Him God, in that what we can’t do He is there to help us through. If you desire to do good and feel like it’s getting difficult, why not talk to the HolySpirit and ask Him to help you with this virtue?
God expects us to be like Him so we can not afford to be any less in our character as believers. If our heavenly Father is good, we ought to carry goodness wherever we go. We have no excuse,this is a challenge I am giving myself even as I share with you. Let’s be good to those around us, even when we don’t feel like they deserve it, and whether they appreciate it or not.
