“Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed, for they will be filled.”

Matthew 5:6 HCSB


There is so much here in the Sermon on the Mount, but as I force myself to focus on one thing, it is this beatitude. Here Jesus tells us that if we seek after righteousness, we will be filled. He tells us repeatedly to seek and we shall find, and I, for one, always focus on finding what I want, not necessarily what He wants. Looking at this I think He is telling me “Yes, seek and you will find, but are you seeking righteousness??? That is what you should be seeking. Are you seeking the Kingdom of Heaven? If that is what you are seeking, you will definitely find it.”
