What It Means To Be Rich in What Matters to God
In the matter of God’s goodness we have got to be irrational. This is the way it is with love, for instance, and with any other deep down, visceral persuasion. We go beyond reason, we do not trust appearances. All surface indications to the contrary we have got to believe that God is good, unfailingly good to us. Even in the thick of troubles, in moments of dire tragedy, calamity, disaster, God is being good. This is illogical, it is nonsense but it is true. His goodness is never one whit diminished, obscured or blunted.
