VERSE OF THE DAY

Genesis 6:22 - 7:1  (NRSV)

[6:22] Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him. [7:1] Then the Lord said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation."

Fortunately, being alone in righteousness is no longer a standard that God expects of us. He knows that we are flawed and full of sin, and more than likely going to fall into temptation from time to time. But He also wants us to have hearts that are willing to listen and to be obedient.  He knows the life that He has planned for each of us.  And His plans are generally way more incredible than anything we could imagine for ourselves. So check yourself, and try to go for righteous status with the Big Guy. It will be worth it.
