Good morning!

Text:  Matthew 5 (Genesis 9-10)

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus brings a list of blessings called “The Beatitudes.”  This one caught my attention:

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” (Matthew 5:6)

The concept is simple.  If anyone actually desires righteousness, to be right with God, they will receive it.  It is just a matter of the heart.  What do we desire,God or other things?  What do we long for, a relationship with the Lord or other things?  The one who chooses the Lord will have Him.  Simple.
