Who is Good?

2 Corinthians 10:12

Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant! Well that reminds me of the saying “Keeping up with the Jones’s” referring to the comparison to one’s neighbor as a benchmark for social class or the accumulation of material goods. Whenever a non believer says to me, “I’m a good person. I don’t need a God”, my first responsive question is, “you’re a good person compared to whom?” and 9 out of 10 times they say “compared to other people”. Paul is telling us what a foolish way of thinking. If our standard of goodness relies on other human beings, we are going to always be disappointed. We are a fallen people and the only way we exist in this world is through the grace of God and the shed blood of His son. It is right to pursue goodness, but let us know whom our standard-bearer is and that is God Himself. God loves Ya;)
