Making a Good God Reality

“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”  Gen. 1:31

The knowledge that God made everything good can be difficult to act on. Everyday life experience contradicts that knowledge. Even second-hand experiences contradict the knowledge that God made everything good.

As a former foster parent, I would fail to see good in bad parents. However, when looking into the eyes of a confused unwanted child, the only knowledge that saved our situation was the knowledge that God made everything good.

god is so goodWe’d talk about what was good and how we could tap into it every day. Children are more adaptable than adults so I learned from them.

First lesson: Even though it’s difficult to act on the spiritual truth that goodness is the only reality, we can.

Second lesson: Prayer helps me focus on a good God.

Third lesson: I can’t just sit around in a contemplative life. I must take explicit social actions in which to make a good God a reality.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Every student’s mind should be strongly impressed by divine Science; by an exalted cognizance of the moral, social, and spiritual qualifications requisite for healing, well knowing it to be impossible for error, evil, and hate to accomplish the grand results of Truth and Love.”
