SMS # 27: Matthew 5:6

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

To desire righteousness as a need – that can only come from God. It is to say, ” I cannot live unless I am right with God; unless I become intolerant of injustice in society; unless I am living the life God so desires from His creation.”

And the promise is this: that whoever so desires to be righteous shall indeed be righteous.

What is your desire?
