“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6
When Jesus said “the one who hungers and thirsts for righteousness will find that hunger met,” He was not talking about someone who had a mere appetite; He was talking about a starving person.
God made us in such a way that we couldn’t exist long without food. What is a starving person interested in? The latest football scores? The flower arrangement at the pink lemonade society? The number of stars in the universe? No! They’re only interested in one thing – food!
In fact, I did some research and discovered that a person can exist about forty days without food, about three days without water, and only eight minutes without air. In the spiritual realm of eternity, man cannot exist one second without Jesus Christ.
May God help us narrow our focus to hunger first and foremost for Him! It will result in bringing glory to God and saving multitudes of souls.
