What is good?

The word good is often over-used.  
"Have you heard that new song by... It's really good." 
"How was that movie?"  "It was good!"
"Did you have a good weekend?"
"How was lunch?"  "You guessed it... it was good."

I recently read an interesting blog post by Kevin DeYoung.  In the post, Kevin challenges us to think about the entertainment that we choose to consume or not.

I found it profoundly simple to use his suggested test before I declare whether something was good or not.  Here's the test... after listening, watching, or otherwise, can I truly say, "Thank you Lord for giving me this good gift." ?

Thanks for the thought, Kevin.
