When God’s definition of “good” clashes with mine…

“A kingdom perspective does not view man’s condition first and then assign to God what we feel would best reflect Him. Rather, a kingdom perspective ascertains how God has determined to glorify Himself and then aligns itself with that  despite our inability to always understand God’s processes. God is good all the time. All the time God is good. However, God’s definition of good isn’t always ours. In fact, God often uses the thing that we call ‘not good’ as a tool to bring about an ultimate purpose, as well the resultant manifestation of His greater glory.”

~ Dr. Tony Evans (Oneness Embraced, p. 244)
