Who is Good?

Yesterday as I parked my car in the downtown corridor, I saw it on the car in the next stall. Right there starring straight at me with a halo over its floppy ears was the graphic design of a dog with a caption proclaiming the goodness of the dog. It is a registered trademark so I will let you draw the conclusions of this play on words.

Seriously, have they ever had a dog? I have. Our  dog was seriously not good most of the time. In fact, I truly believe he had a sin problem.


Once upon a time, I took our golden retriever with an attitude, as the breeder told the innocents with the checkbook, for a walk. On said walk, we passed by the house where the small bark-y dog, confined to an upper deck always barked and danced thumping his professionally trimmed nails like chalk on the deck.

This time, Cash had had enough. That barking establishment was going to receive retribution for all the times we had walked through the valley of the dogs–the only way out of our troll-guarded neighborhood. Cash leaned into the leash and started pulling me up the steep driveway. Once he identified the most advantageous spot for the wind to carry the noxious smell, he backed up and squatted his behind down on their concrete pad. Here, like a bank customer, he made a deposit. In your face little bark-y dog with the chalk board dance.

I knew straight away Cash was a fallen creature.

So you think dogs are good do you?  Are they good in the sense that God is good?

I maintain these people have no sense of the meaning of good; neither do they have a sense about this Glorious God who is altogether good!

I’ve gone long enough today. Come back tomorrow and I will give you a list of characteristics that simply defy dog, but glorify God who is most certainly Good!
