​The main message the apostle John, the close friend of Jesus, learned from his time with the Lord was: “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5, NKJV).

To put it in other words: God is good—totally good. If people spent years with you and me in our ministries, is this the message about God that would stand out to them?

In Psalm 145, David is talking about conveying our testimony of God to the next generation and to the world. His desire is that we will celebrate God’s “abundant goodness” and that we will proclaim: “The Lord is good to all; He has compassion on all He has made” (Ps. 145:4-9, NIV).

If the goodness of God is the message that we will pass on, many lives will be transformed.

God’s goodness brings healing and transformation. May our legacy be to leave behind for future generations the deep impression that God is good, so that many can have abundant lives that are fruitful.
