God Alone Is Good

You are my Lord, my goodness is nothing apart from You.
- Psalm 16:2 -

There are plenty of good things in life. But they will soon be gone. Even the best of them can afterward leave us feeling empty and regretful.

Only God alone is the ultimate good in our life.

The Psalmist in Psalm 16 said God is our preserver (v.1), our total goodness-giver (v.2), our counsel and instruction (v.7), and the One who makes known the path of life and fills us with joy in His presence (v.11).

Very often we let the lesser goods eclipse our acceptance of the everlasting goodness of God in our lives. But the fleeting nature of the lesser goods will ultimately disappoint us.

Only God alone is truly good!
Never settle for second best.
