Week 6: GOODNESS = a life full of virtue, doing what is right, righteousness in action (Benevolence = the quality of being morally good or virtuous, uprightness of heart and life—action)

Maitri (Sanskrit) = means benevolence, loving-kindness, friendliness, amity, good will, and active interest in others.

“And the supernatural fruits of his light will be seen in you— goodness, righteousness, and truth.” Ephesians 5:9 The Passion Translation

“God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it, He throws caution to winds, giving to the needy in reckless abandon. His right-loving, right-giving ways never run out, never wear out. This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:8-11 The Message

“With this in mind, we constantly pray that our God will empower you to live worthy of all that he has invited you to experience. And we pray that by his power all the pleasures of goodness and all works inspired by faith would fill you completely.” 2 Thessalonians 1:11 The Passion Translation


God, thank you for your goodness in my life.
I am supernaturally empowered to do what is right.
With discernment, I take the right action at the right time.


OPENING MEDITATION 

 Think of a time you experienced complete GOODNESS.
 It may be a recent happening, or from the past.
 Picture it clearly in your heart and mind.
 Feel all the emotions.
 What sensations do you feel in the body?
 Where do you feel these sensations?
 Label your emotions with one word.
 Label the sensations felt with one word.
 Tuck these words deep into your memory account of GOODNESS.

 CLOSING MEDITATION 

 “Wait quietly in my presence while My thoughts form silently in the depths of your being. Do not rush this process, because hurry keeps your heart earthbound. I am the Creator of the entire universe, yet I choose to make my humble home in your heart. It is there where you know me most intimately; it is there where I speak to you in holy whispers. Ask My Spirit to quiet your mind so that you can hear my still small voice within you. I am speaking to you continually. . . words of GOODNESS. Tune your heart to receive these messages of abundant blessing. Lay your requests before Me, and wait in expectation.” (Adapted from Jesus Calling, September 21, by Sarah Young)

 “And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power. Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.” Ephesians 3:16-17, The Passion Translation
