Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Goodness Prayer

The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness.. (Galatians 5:22a)

Ever wonder what it means to be "good'? The scriptures have much to say about God being good but not that much about us being good. Here is the definition of from Easton's Dictionary:
Goodness in man is not a mere passive quality, but the deliberate preference of right to wrong, the firm and persistent resistance of all moral evil, and the choosing and following of all moral good.
I think this speaks to our ability, through His Spirit, to actively walk out God's goodness in our hearts.

Thank you for giving us the ability to demonstrate your goodness Father. Please bestow grace on us today to manifest Your Goodness in the world.

Amen
