God's Goodness



Harold Macdonald

Believe that God is infinitely great,

displays the very Self beyond all doubt;

shows the good in things God is about;

that God delights in all things God doth make.


- including you and me. We are Godís joy!

As Irenaeus said, Godís purpose thrives

When humankind is totally alive.

We are not mannequin nor doll nor toy.


But some prefer to see indebtedness;

a favourite guilt-producing ploy,

(calculated to ignore the Almightyís joy)

shortcomings, (i.e. sins), to endlessly confess


They miss the core of evidence faith shows

That God is good; thatís all we need to know.
