Jesus is better

   I gotta tell you something.
   Jesus is better.
   Better than anything, and better than anyone. Better than your wildest dreams. Absolutely, altogether, hands-down the best.
   And you'd think I should get that by now. But every time I think I understand, I don't. Every time I think I've seem the extent of God's goodness, He says, "Hey. Let me show you even more. Something even better. More of who I am. More of why you need me. Let me blow your mind."
   And every time something good shows up in my life, I have to turn to God and say, "You're still better." Because He is.
   I mean, think about it. He's the one who gave the thing to me. The Creator and Lord of the universe knows my needs and my desires. And He cares about what I care about. And my joy brings Him joy. And He is the giver of every good and perfect gift.
   And He is good. God is so good.
