RIGHTEOUSNESS – Mon, Aug 07, 2017


Genesis 7:1 KJV

And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Is it ever possible to live with very immoral and sinful people without getting stained or tarnished? Are we able to thrive in environments which contradict our value systems?

I believe this is the situation Noah found himself in. Here was a stickler for righteousness living in a place that didn’t know same. I’m sure he was called names like, ‘Pastor, Osofo, Angel Noah, etc…’

But those names  probably only spurred him on. We are not sure of his children’s moral or religious status, but what we know is that the man’s deeds saved them too, as well as their whole family. Righteousness exalts a nation. (Pro 14:34)

A corrupt and depraved society, environment or community is still not able to totally overcome the righteousness soul, if that same sould is willing. Righteousness may be your get-out-of-jail card in a sticky situation, consider it!!

Have a blessed week.
