Good – beautiful and kind

ἀγαθός (agathos)

“agathos means “good,” though its connotations overlap with kalos (“beautiful”) and chrēstos (“kind”).” – Mounce’s Expository Dictionary

Luke 11:13
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Romans 12:2
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Philippians 1:6
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:28
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Meditate with me on all this wonderful verses containing this agathos good.
