A Craving Of Righteousness

Matthew 5:6

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

I want you to think of a day you went to your refrigerator and cabinets for a certain food. It may have been a certain kind of cookies or a steak. It may have been a certain drink that you were dying to have. When you opened the door, it wasn’t there. You can have a million other things in there that are good, but not one of them will suffice. Not one of then will take care of the craving you are having. It will eventually get to the point to were you go to the store to get what you are craving. We should be this way with seeking our righteousness. We should want it so bad that the temptations of the world would never suffice. No matter how alluring the enemy tries to make them, we only want the pure love of God. It is like someone who starts a diet. At first the struggle they still crave the junk food they once indulged in, but the longer time goes on their diet the begin craving the healthy food. As they do this their health begins to improve. They begin to feel better. They begin to lose weight and even their mindset improves. The word of God is the food for our righteousness. As we begin to delve into it, we find ourselves shedding the sins and temptations of the world. You will find yourself with a better mindset toward studying the word of God. You find that you crave your times in prayer with God and that you crave to fill you mind and spirit with his word. So, let’s get back to hunger and thirst after our righteousness so we can once again be filled
