Genesis 6:8

I have begun a new Bible reading "plan"--which is not really a plan at all, but rather a goal. By reading four chapters a day, two from the OT and two from the NT, beginning in Genesis and Matthew, I should read the entire OT once and the NT twice in about a year. So far, so good.
I was reading about Noah tonight. 6:8 says, "But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord." I am wondering about Noah, and what inspired him to be so different from the culture he lived in. If it is so hard for me, with the revelation of Christ, God's written word, and the blessed fellowship of other believers to walk a righteous and blameless life, how did he stand alone against such total depravity? I wish I knew.
