God is Good!

As a mother comforts her child,
    so I will comfort you;
    you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. Isaiah 66:13


 To a successful kingdom surrounded by great  powers, a defeated people taken to live in a foreign land,  and 1st century disciples sent on the road with nothing,  today's scriptures have a word of comfort: “Wherever and however you are, God, his power and his love go with you.” Or, as the VBS curriculum for “Roar: Life is Wild: God is Good” reads and in Golden, Colorado, next week 280 children will shout:

             When life is unfair:...God is good!

             When life is scary...God is good!

             When life changes...God is good!

             When life is sad...God is good!

             When life is good:...God is good!


Out of the mouth of babes.  Sometimes the scriptures are just not that complicated.
