Romans 3:9-20, None is Righteous

Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today

There is no one who is righteous, not even one
— Romans 3:10

NL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, May 22, 2019

by Stefanie K. Fauth, Clergy Stuff


The idea that everyone is broken can be upsetting for some people.

We want to be whole. We want to be perfect - or at least Good Enough.

But we all fall short.

And while it can seem like a condemnation, I see it as freeing. I’ll never be perfect, but that’s ok! God loves me anyway.

The parts of the world I can’t fix - I don’t have to freak out, God is at work on those things too.

I may not be perfect, but I am worthy of love. That knowledge frees me up to try and do what I can do in this life.

Do you wish you were perfect? Is there any freedom in knowing that nobody is?
