RE Verse reading–Genesis 1:1, Psalm 100, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 8:8-9, Philippians 2:5-8, James 1:17-18 (day seven) God is great. God is good. Teaching children this prayer shapes their minds in a positive and powerful way. These words are a simple statement of brilliant theology. Great is a word that means “big”. God is huge, vast. Think size. Good refers to moral value. God is kind, benevolent and fair. After 13 weeks of prophetic instruction, it is good to be reminded that there is a beautiful balance within the Father’s heart. “The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but he will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations” (Numbers 14:18) How can anyone possibly be both? Some are big but not kind. (power makes them harsh) Others are kind but weak. (they want to help but cannot) Only God is both great and good. Happy Sunday, everyone!
