God does not carry a niggardly, miserly, and envious nature:  He is too rich to envy, and too good to have any desire to envy.  He is as liberal (generous) as He is rich, lavishing bounty according to the ability of the creature that His goodness is exercised on.

The divine goodness, since it is the supreme goodness, is goodness that is highly active.  God’s goodness is not an idle pent-up goodness like a closed spring or a sealed fountain bubbling up within itself, but God’s goodness bubbles out of itself:  a fountain of gardens to water every part of His creation.  “The fullness of Him who fills all in all” (Ephesians 1:23)

 

From the book “Boundlessly Good”
