God made…..!

2. God made all things: the sky and the land, the heavens and the earth; and they were good.

I recall a response that always comes to mind when I hear the phrase: “God is good!” My knee jerk reaction is, “All of the time!” When you look at the creation stories the regular phrase used is, “and God saw that it was good.” Advent is a time when we may look at all that is amiss in the world but recognise that ‘goodness’ is an element of the spirit of God. An Advent theme is repentance but also an acknowledgment that we seek what is good in the world, that even in the tainted and ugly situations we may bring the lovely and good. Jesus found the kernel of his Father’s goodness and grace in the most unlikely of people.

Today look at the most tainted events in the news and look for God’s grace embedded there, pray that goodness may prevail.
