GOOD versus GREAT

Bill Cosby said it this way:

God made a tree and said it was (pause) Good.

God made a rabbit and said it was (pause) Good.

Man made the refrigerator and said it was Amazing.

Man made the car and said it was Awesome or Fabulous.

We are fanatical about our creations. Praising what we have made.

Fantastic, Excellent, Awesome, Fabulous, Amazing, etc.

God made the world, and said it was (pause) good.

The refrigerator eventually broke down

The car eventually blew its engine.

But the Tree still stands, and the rabbit still hops.

What is our definition of Good vs. Great? GOD is great. Man was only Good.
