Thursday Thoughts - August 2

I hear it said all the time - “God is good.” I’d wager this makes excellent sense and I fully embrace it, yet I wonder what this means for those who casually throw it around.
So often, “God is good” becomes hyper individualized, and then I find myself at a loss to understand. Let’s say, someone has planned a big outdoor event, which had nice weather that enabled it to go off smoothly. God is not good because one has favorable weather and God would still be good if one had bad weather. I’m not sure these weather scenarios or other kinds of individualistic views that God orchestrates the world for me, can be very relevant considerations when it comes to saying; “God is good.”
