Goodness is the engagement of love  ..  oh yes .. it displays integrity .. honesty .. and .. compassion to others which allows us to do the right thing .. it takes our virtue and excellence and models it to others in the action of love .. it’s doing the right thing even when it doesn’t feel like we should .. just as Joseph was betrayed and sold as a slave .. he chose to make his situation good by helping and treating others better than he needed too .. oh yes ..  Goodness is the model and way to Christ .. it’s the character that makes people liked and even lovable by others ..  it’s what’s attractive and luring .. that catches people’s attention and respect .. it builds marriages and shows God’s love to others around us .. it’s virtue in action .. it’s being a role model and putting into practice excellence in all that we do to God and others .. goodness .. simply enables us to be liked and enjoyed even if an enemy comes against us .. it’s the taste of what’s to come .. the flavor of how we are to be ..  our expression of worship and gratitude to Him played out in our lives so that life can be more enjoyable for us all .. we strive to be good ..  because He is good to us .. you see .. we serve Him who is love .. and .. in doing so ..  we are to love .. yes .. goodness is the application of love ..  being good will help us be patient .. kind .. understanding .. and .. forgiving to others .. it is the fruit that helps us build each other up .. build His Church .. reach His community .. and .. yes ..  restore relationships .. for we are now seeking the best in all we do .. haha .. excellence in action .. these fruits of the Spirit .. they cost dearly .. they were not cheap for the One who bought them for us .. all for our betterment and His glory .. and friends .. we must never take for granted what cost Him so much … oh yeah .. Love Wins Period

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
