A father told his daughter that she needs to go to bed on time, otherwise he won’t tell her a bedtime story. When the daughter went to bed on time, she’d hear a story. When she misbehaved and didn’t go on time, she didn’t hear a story.
One time the daughter woke up in the middle of night and left her room. She saw the father sitting in his room, working on computer.
“Daddy,” she screamed, “go to sleep! Otherwise, you will forget all the stories!”

Sometimes we forget that just because G-d doesn’t follow the rules He set up, it doesn’t make Him not Right or not Good. After all, He is the source of good. When we say “G-d is good”, we don’t [only] mean that G-d does good. We mean that G-d is Good. Or, more accurately, that Good is G-d.
