What is the Meaning of Good?
I am visiting the dentist this afternoon. Oh Goodie! I hope to have a "good" report when I get out of the chair. When I am home again, I would like to be able to say it was a "good" trip. So, what does the word really mean? Good question.
By the way; where do you do most of your praying? I have thought that the dentist chair is a good place to practice! One might say that only atheists don't pray in that chair.
Anyhow, what is the meaning of good? Are you good? So far I have used the word in this blog a good number of times. Maybe I will use it a good many fewer times in the rest of this blog writing. Okay; so what is the meaning if good? There are a good many definitions of the word _ _ _ _,(you have to guess what word goes in the blank.
The first definition is "that which is morally right; righteousness. The second is; benefit or advantage to someone or something. Merriam-Webster says good is "of favorable character or tendency. Other examples are; good looks, good to eat, one good arm, bad money drives out good, a good risk, good for another year,good for a hundred dollars, made a very good deal, and had a good time. Believe me, there are a good many more uses of the word "good" in the dictionary.
Are we good for the kingdom of God? Do we show people a good example of how Jesus would act when we are in public, (or in private). Let's be good citizens both on the earth, as well as, good citizens of heaven, Understanding what we need to do for Christ begins with a good understanding of His word. Got it? Good! Okay; without going back to count; how many times did I use the good word good in this blog today?
