“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” (Matthew 5:6).
God has set a great hunger within us, yet we settle for so little. We pursue the multifaceted and even good offerings of this life—food, drink, travel, relationships—only to discover with each experience that we are hungering for more than these things can provide. To desire more than this world sets before us is the starting place for discovering the satisfaction to be realized in the Bread of Life and Living Water of Jesus Christ. Might each pang of hunger serve as a reminder to crave for more.
