Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.
Nothing satisfies like a good meal. Imagine the fulfillment of anticipating a great dinner with friends, and it turns out to be as good as you imagined! When you finish the dessert and the last cup of coffee, you push back your chair and relax with your friends. You’ve been “filled” in every way.
A fine dinner with good friends is the perfect imagery for the satisfaction we experience when we hunger and thirst for God and His purposes. Hunger and thirst are not aberrations in life; they are, in fact, a normal cycle and actual signs of life. When we long, desire, and want the things of God, our hearts fill with His wisdom, love, and peace.
Jesus makes a point of saying that we experience real satisfaction when we long for righteousness. Righteousness in our lives isn’t somebody’s arbitrary list of do’s and don’ts. Instead, it is a sign of our passion to please God in everything we say and do. If we care that much about God, we won’t have to worry about the details.
What do you hunger and thirst for – pleasing yourself of pleasing God? How would it change your life if you realized that true satisfaction comes only from a deep desire to please God?
