To perceive God as the unlimited truth and goodness is to refer to an absolute definition of righteousness. So, when we say absolute, there is no contesting of the word. We then believe that God is the unlimited patience for He is able to endure our sins and even gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ to redeem us. He waits for us to grow and realize our own mistakes. At the same time, God is the unlimited wisdom. He knows everything; His knowledge goes beyond what ordinary human beings know. He does not make any mistakes. He is the unlimited holiness, and this makes Him different from all other entities.

His holiness relates to “His majesty and His perfect moral purity, [where, in Him] there is absolutely no sin or evil thought […] at all” (Attributes of God – Holy Characteristics, 2009). He is also the unlimited faithfulness such that all the things that He guaranteed to happen will happen. He does not lie; He is the absolute truth. All these attributes of God still pertain to His absolute truth and goodness. To be patient and kind, to be wise and omniscient, and to be holy and faithful only validate the fact that God is definitely good.

The Tendency to Go Beyond Connecting to God is not a complex endeavor, as most people may think. In certain circumstances where an individual goes beyond what is expected of him, there is a point when he makes a move which touch other people’s lives or make himself a better person. I experienced this “tendency to go beyond” when I was stuck in a very long line of students who were waiting for their turn for an admission interview. I knew I was never patient when it comes to waiting. I had been there since eight in the morning, and it was already noon.

I did not have breakfast as I wanted to come early and be finished with the interview early. When I was only two students away from the interview, the girl behind me was already looking like a ghost, her skin was dead white. I was thinking that maybe she was ill or that she feared the long line of people or that she was just nervous. Either way, I had second thoughts about exchanging my place in the line with the girl. My care reflexes poured and decided to just exchange places with her. What is one spot anyway?

I know I will have to do the interview very soon. So when I was called to come in, the interviewer caught my hand in a handshake and congratulated me. She said that I was very noble in giving up my slot for the sick girl, and that I was accepted to the school. I thought then that it was not my intention to do any heroic deed; I just acted as I thought I should, and I was greatly rewarded. I think that is one of God’s ways of showing that going beyond what we normally expect ourselves to do, whether unconsciously or not, could always lead to a positive effect.
