You Are Very Good!

Genesis 1:1-10

The Hebrew word for “good” in Genesis 1:10 is tov. Tov is a small, but an explosive word. Tov is the word God calls light, water, seeds, day/night, and animals after creation. Human beings are described as “very good.”

God says that anything that functions in a way to further God’s plan is tov. Anything that produces life and contains the potential for more life within it is good (tov). So, God uses the word good to describe the functionality of something, more than the moral goodness of it.

God calls us very good, reminding us that we have tremendous potential in cooperating with Him in the spreading of His kingdom. Just like a seed has the potential to multiply and fill the earth, you have potential to multiply God’s love to change the world. God has created us as IU so that you will collaborate with Jesus to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) to make disciples who make disciples.
