Creation-good: The delight of Wisdom in the children of man

Proverbs 8:22-31 “The LORD possessed me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old. (23) Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth. (24) When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water. (25) Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth, (26) before he had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world. (27) When he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, (28) when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, (29) when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, (30) then I was beside him, like a master workman, and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, (31) rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.

There is good. A father loves his children; delights in them living out their lives. Likewise God delighted in Wisdom, working alongside in relationship of delight and diligence. The goodness I experience in seeing my kids work and exercise wisdom has a Source. The wise thing to do is to honor that Source; loving, delighting, rejoicing in God my creator.
