Is Good Good Enough?

One of the earliest prayers we learn is God is great, God is good, Let us thank Him for our food.

Something I’ve been thinking about, though, is whether or not God really is great.

Understand something, please.  I believe God is awesome and perfect and any number of other descriptive words.

However, in the Bible, I rarely come across God described as great.  He and His works are described as good.

After Creation, He looked at everything and called it “Good.”  Not great.

Jesus is called “Good Master” and says that there is only One who is good.  Not great.

God works everything for good for those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose.  Not great.

He who begins a good work in you will complete it to the end.  Not great.

Simply put, Good seems to be good enough.

Is that enough for us?
