"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied"
I keep coming back to this verse.
In particular, the part where Jesus uses the words hunger and thirst to describe how we should be for righteousness.
Imagine being hungry and thirsty, and i mean for real, not just wanting-a-bedtime-snack hungry and thirsty, but a I-haven't-eaten-in-days hungry and thirsty.
Imagine the feeling. Stomach rumbling, mouth salavaiting at the thought of food and drink, mind thinking of nothing else.
You would do anything to be fed, to have a drink, to satisfy that hunger and thirst.
Is this what Jesus meant when he said that we are blessed when we hunger and thirst for righteousness?
Is this what we do?
