Today’s Scripture: Psalm 107:1-2; Psalm 34:8
In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt once made a stop at a Nashville hotel called the Maxwell House where he was promptly served a fresh cup of their famous coffee. After drinking a second cup, Roosevelt contentedly set his cup on the table and exclaimed that it was “good to the last drop.” Over 100 years later, Maxwell House coffee is still known by that slogan.
You may or may not like Maxwell House, but there is someone whose goodness is even greater. In Psalm 107:1-2, the psalmist declares the goodness of God. We are told to “give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the LORD say so.”
God does not just do what is good. He is good. His very nature is good. He defines what it means to be good.
But the goodness of God is not just something to be enjoyed. It is to be exclaimed. Like Teddy Roosevelt, we can taste and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8), then sit back and proclaim His goodness to all who will hear. He is, after all, good to the last drop.
Today’s Prayer: Father, thank you for being good in every way. Help me to continually trust in the goodness of your character.
