Righteous One

Jeremiah 5:1-2 
Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.

God would have spared Sodom had He found ten righteous men (Gen. 18:26–32); but to spare Jerusalem, He would have settled for one! Yet Jeremiah could not find one, not even among the “great men” who were spiritual leaders in the city. Never underestimate the importance of one person living wholly for the Lord.

Perhaps you can be that “righteous one” in your home, community or place of employment.

Prayer: Lord, empower me with your Holy Spirit to live righteously.
