“What’s So Great About God?”  Psalm 145 (esp. vss. 8-16)

Remember praying, “God is great.  God is good…”?  God’s greatness is deeply connected to God’s goodness.  How is God good?  Here in Psalm 145 we have an important portion of God’s resume.  Think of all the things we could say about God: “biggest,” “most powerful,” “loudest,” “quietest,” “first,” “always right,” etc….  But when people of faith have expressed thanks and praise for God’s greatness, it has been, time and time again, in terms of God’s goodness.  What can we learn from the Psalmist as we follow Christ, love God, and serve the world?
