“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6
Note that it is not those who are hungering and thirsting after happiness who are being satisfied. It is those who strive for the righteousness of Christ in their own lives. Soul satisfaction is something that only God can give. We live in a world where people hunger and thirst for fame, fortune, success, love, sex, or happiness. But we read about people all the time that have these but do not have what their soul really hungers for. That’s because they are looking for satisfaction in all the wrong places.
Until people look to God they will never find what they are looking for. And the theme song of their desperate lives will be the theme song of a generation past as expressed by Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones… “I can’t get no satisfaction though I try and I try and I try and I try.”
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.”
