hungry for God

Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Matthew 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled – Matthew 5:6

Can you think of a time when you were really hungry? What did hunger make you act like?

Usually, hunger drives you to do something about it. It could make you run to the fridge and get food, or go to the store to buy something to eat. If you’re hungry, you do something about it.

Today’s Bible verse talks about hungering and thirsting for righteousness. A hunger for righteousness should cause you to do something. If you’re hungry for righteousness, you’ll act differently and speak differently. It will change how you live and the decisions that you make.

A hunger for righteousness is something that others can see.

As a Christian, you should be developing a hunger for the things of God. You should be wanting to spend time in the Bible and in prayer. If you don’t, you may need to reevaluate what is important in your life.

Just like hunger for food makes you act, hunger for God should make you act. You should be desiring to get to know God better. Time spent getting to know God is never wasted.
