Five Minute Friday (on Saturday): good

Yesterday I unthinkingly asked the baristas at my favorite coffee shop if they were having a good Friday, just I as would have asked if they were having a good Monday or a good Tuesday.

I realized, about the same time that one of them said it: “I’m having a good Good Friday.”

There are different sorts of goodness, and one of them is subjective and based on individual experiences and one is objective and exists no matter our individual experiences.

And the essential goodness of Good Friday is not a subjective goodness, but an objective goodness, and it does not rest with us, but with God.

His goodness, also, is an objective goodness, superseding all our experiences and objections, permeating all the pain and all the questions, making even the day the perfect Son of God died as the meanest criminal a day glorious and good.
