“a good deed”

March 7, 2016

When His disciples complained about a woman wasting money by anointing Him with expensive perfume, Jesus said, “Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me.” (Matthew 26:10). If you could do a good deed to Jesus, would you?  Would you do it no matter the cost?  If so, […]

“the abundance of the heart”

May 4, 2015

Jesus said to the Pharisees, “Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.  A good man out of his good treasure brings forth good things, and an evil man out of his evil treasure brings forth evil things.” (Matthew 12:34-35; 15:18; […]

Psalm 136:1 – “His lovingkindness is everlasting”

October 29, 2013

1 Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Before reading any further, take a look at Psalm 136.  Really, look at it now.  I’ll assume now that you have (even thought I know you probably haven’t).  Did you quickly see a pattern?  Every verse ends with, “for His […]

Psalm 106:1 – “He is good”

October 25, 2013

1 Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. The adjective “good” can be defined in various ways.  One definition is “possessing or displaying moral virtue.”  This definitely defines God.  Another is “showing kindness,” and this one fits God as well.  However you define good, […]

Psalm 86:5 – “ready to forgive”

October 18, 2013

5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. When the prodigal son in Luke 15 returned home, he was ready to confess his sin (:17-21); and his father was ready to forgive (:22-24).  The father in that parable is a model of our […]

Psalm 37:27 – depart and do

September 26, 2013

27 Depart from evil and do good, so you will abide forever. This verse summarizes the life of a Christian as well as any other – a life of departing and doing.  First, we must depart from evil – hate what God hates and avoid it in our lives.  But that’s not enough.  We must […]

Psa 85:12– “the Lord will give what is good”

September 19, 2013

12 Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce. The Lord knows what we need (Matthew 6:8) and gives us what is good (7:11).  “They who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing” (Psalm 34:10b).  It may not be what we want, because […]

34:8 – “taste and see”

August 15, 2013

8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him! If someone is hesitant to try a food we like, we may tell them, “Just taste it and see” – convinced that if they do they will also like it.  To those who may deny or […]

Proverbs 16:20 – “attention to the word”

June 22, 2013

20 He who gives attention to the word will find good, and blessed is he who trusts in the LORD. Do most people have wrecks because they don’t know how to drive?  No, it is because they don’t pay attention to what they are doing.  The same is often true spiritually.  Many people know what God’s […]

Proverbs 22:1 – a good name

March 9, 2013

1 A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, favor is better than silver and gold. Jesus did not even have a place to lay His head (Matthew 8:20), but He “kept increasing…in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52).  Which do you choose?  Do you put forth more effort to have […]
