Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled – Matthew 5:6
When you’re really hungry or thirsty, you’ll do anything you can to get food or drink. In fact, it’s almost all you can think about. When you’re in need of a drink, you don’t want to chat with a friend for two hours about your history class project. Instead, you want to do whatever you can to quench your thirst.
This is a lot like what today’s Bible verse is challenging us with. It’s telling us that we should be hungry and thirsty for righteousness. It should be something that we’re going after and wanting.
Challenge yourself today to go after righteousness. Don’t become so used to your friends and what’s going on around you that you forget that you should be wanting to get to know God better and to become more like Him. Determine to hunger and thirst after righteousness.
