Good, a word that means “pleasing, favorable, nice.”
There are several different types of good, from good luck to a pleasant meal. In the Bible, though, the word is most often used to describe God’s goodness.
The most important and best known type of good is referred to as “godliness.” It is the most significant and inseparable element of a godly character.
It is a combination of two primary qualities–love toward God and the ability to do good for others.
Love towards God gives rise to a godly heart, a desire to serve Him and to steward His resources well. It also provides the foundation for true goodness, as Paul says in Ephesians 5:10.
A godly heart is a fountain of good things. It is full of joy, laughter and excitement at the opportunity to serve.
This joy is accompanied by a desire to share it with the world around us. It is a desire to do good to the poor and downtrodden, and to help mitigate evil.
The best example of this is the story of Joseph in Egypt. His good heart was reflected in the way he served his captors and fellow inmates (Genesis 39:21).
In the New Testament, however, the term is more than a quality of godliness; it is a strong word indicating a zealousness to do good.
Agathosune is a very powerful word, and it is one of the most frequently used in the New Testament. It can be a noun, an adjective or a verb, and it is the best of all the words for describing the act or intent of doing good in general.
It is most commonly used in the context of loving wisdom, which involves doing good without hurting a soul. It is the most notable of the many types of good that we encounter in Scripture.
The best way to show the goodness of God is to practice it. To do this, you need a sound knowledge of what is right and to be able to exercise good will. In the end, it all comes down to your relationship with Jesus Christ.
