Hunger & Thirst – Matthew 5:6

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

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

What is it that you desire? What is it that just consumes your mind? There are so many things in this world that distracts us. Yet we are told here by Yeshua that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled. Think about that for a minute. What does it mean to hunger and thirst for righteousness?

We’ve all been hungry for food at one time or another. However, how long have you gone without food? How long have you gone without water? I can promise you, one who has gone without food or water long enough, they are a different person. They’re only desire is to fill that need.

One who is truly hungry and thirsty for righteousness will do whatever it takes to fill that desire in their life. They will cast off everything the world has to offer just to get the righteousness of the Word.

So, do you hunger and thirst for righteousness? How does your desires for righteousness compare to your desires of this world?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
