Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6 (KJV)
Have you ever been hungry? I mean so hungry your belly began to swell from malnutrition, and you were getting weaker and weaker. I have never been that hungry.
Jesus’s words above are not about physical hunger, but a hunger for righteousness. A thirst for righteousness.
What do I want for Christmas?
I want that my greatest desire, hunger and thirst to be for righteousness to reign in my heart, mind and life; for my community, State, Nation and the world.
When righteousness reigns in our hearts there will be peace on earth. That righteousness is Jesus Christ.
