Savoring a good God

I just want to take a moment and dwell on the GOODNESS of God. Johnny Piper says,

"What is sin?
It is the glory of God not honored.
The holiness of God not reverenced.
The greatness of God not admired.
The power of God not praised.
The truth of God not sought.
The wisdom of God not esteemed.
The beauty of God not treasured.
The goodness of God not savored.
The faithfulness of God not trusted.
The commandments of God not obeyed.
The justice of God not respected.
The wrath of God not feared.
The grace of God not cherished.
The presence of God not prized.
The person of God not loved.
That is sin."

So I just want to take a moment and SAVOR the goodness of God and I encourage you to do it as well! James 1:17 says, 
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above"

Creation is a GIFT to show off the goodness of God around us

CRAZY water games are a GOOD gift from the Lord
Friends are a great gift from the Lord

CRAZY cute babies are a gift as is LIFE

As Luke would say our children are a gift from the Lord (including the dog in that statement)

Take a moment and dwell on the good things in your life and SAVOR the GOOD GOD who gave you each gift! Bless you all!
