What does it mean to hunger and thirst for righteousness?
In the Beatitudes, Jesus says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” (Matthew 5:6).
This isn’t the only place where thirst is referenced though. One of my other, favorite verses is Psalm 143:6 which says,
“I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.”
I know that this is a super short blog post–which I am so sorry for, by the way–but chapter was about 3 hours long with dinner, and I procrastinated on my homework. Yes, true and awful story. Anyways, every single time that you feel yourself get thirsty for water or your favorite soft-drink, think of what it means for your SOUL to thirst, especially to thirst for RIGHTEOUSNESS! We can reconvene with another blog post to discuss this 🙂
Have a blessed and thirst-for-righteousness filled day!
