Are you thirsty?

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!

-Sarah 🙂
