All sermons in this series. Is God really always good? What about the pain, conflict, suffering, and loss in our lives? God’s goodness is present whether we feel it or not, and it is not based on our goodness. Focusing on God’s goodness is important because His goodness is the center of our relationship with Him. Understanding His goodness enables us to see Him as the key person in our lives, but we can’t love and trust God if we don’t understand His goodness.
