Verse of the Day: Matthew 5:6
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.’ – Matthew 5:6
We all desire to be righteous before God. However, how strongly do we desire it? Jesus said that we should hunger and thirst for it. In other words, we should desire this above anything else.
This is what God desires of us. To be righteous, to do the right thing, to be as He created us to be. However, if we do not make this our focus, or if other things can take precedence, we will not attain it. I want to encourage everyone reading this to go before God in prayer, asking Him to guide your steps to do all that He commands and turn away from that which He does not want. Ask Him to help you be a righteous servant and son. For if this is truly your greatest desire, you will attain it.
