Day Four: Goodness Through and Through

Psalm 125:4 (NLT) – “O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you.”

Psalm 119:68 says that all that God is and does is good. “You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees”. This is the security with which the people of God approach the Lord in prayer. Why is the psalmist asking to be taught of God’s decrees in response of His goodness?

In what areas of your life do you need God’s goodness to overflow and bring security in?

Today’s passage says that God does good to those who are good. 2 Peter 1.5 says “make every effort to add to your faith goodness.” What are some practical ways in which you can add goodness to your faith?

The ending of today’s verse says “…whose hearts are in tune with you.” Other translations use the word ‘righteous’ instead of ‘in tune’. What does it mean to be in tune with God, and how does that bring out God’s righteousness?  How can you be more in tune with the Lord?
