MOST RECENT

When I read Matthew chapter 5, the idea of being hungry and thirsty for righteousness is what stood out to me. "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." I found a definition of righteousness that was helpful. "A truly Christian lifestyle ... that changes us from the inside out ... so that we no longer seek the praise of men ... but causes us to seek God's approval above everything else." I think about what if I was truly hungry or thirsty...where food or drink was not readily available...how intense the desire for food or water would be. The people that Jesus was talking to probably knew what this kind of hunger and thirst was like. We should have that kind of hunger and thirst to live the life that God desires for us. However, appetites aren't filled until we do something about it. It is one thing to think and say that we are hungry but It is another to take the steps to satisfy that hunger and to quench our thirst. If we are spiritually hungry, we should be filling that hunger and thirst with daily feedings from Gods word and prayer, with worship and with with Jesus, the source of life itself! Only Jesus can fill us up with righteousness! I love that this verse says that if we hunger for righteousness we will be filled ! What a great promise! .
Lord, help me to hunger and thirst for righteousness that only comes through Christ and God Holy Spirit's influence on my life and heart.

There was so much in this chapter! What jumped out at you?

Matthew 5:5
.
I think meekness gets a bad rap. Today, it's most commonly considered a pejorative term for someone who seems too weak or quiet to stand up for themselves. Of course this is sometimes true, and Jesus definitely welcomes people like this who are marginalized, but I think He refers here also to a more positive form of meekness, one characterized by a contentment with what you have and a desire to care for others. It's often said that the best king is one who never wanted the crown--he doesn't seek this privilege for his own gain, and thus (hopefully) governs responsibility, with the benefit of others in mind. This should be our idea of meekness. As the oft quoted 1 Corinthians 13 says, love "does not insist on its own way;" likewise, we (especially those of us who are more privileged) should aim to focus less on how to meet our own desires, and more on how to use what we have been given to help others.
