Good?

Just got off of the phone with Chuck.  I was sharing a conversation we had this morning in our study of Mark 1.  One of the guys stated that he and God seemed to have a radically different definition of what is good.  I agree with that sentiment completely.  Hebrews 11:6, James 1:17, and Psalm 84:11 especially tells us that He gives good to those who follow Him, not to mention Romans 8:28.
Good?
Even a cursory reading of the New Testament, seems to call into question what is good.  For Paul the list in 2 Corinthians 6:4 – 10, that is good?  Seems like in God’s economy that is the case.

Chuck remarked during the conversation that we have to learn to define terms the way God does rather than trying to make God fit into our definitions.

Good advice, from one deep in the trenches.
