“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
To crave fairness in our society is a common feeling and one that is seldom satisfied. I think it is human nature to want order in our lives and to be treated in the “right” way. It is so disconcerting when we see inequitable solutions as the only answer for ourselves and those we love. We hurt when we feel that “they deserve something better.” Sometimes we even punish ourselves for not being able to adequately fill that need on our own by adding distance between God and us. This beatitude reflects God’s wonderful promise of
a future of fulfilled desire through Christ.
OH GOD, WE ASK THAT YOU CONTINUE TO BE WITH US WHEN WE GO THROUGH TIMES OF UNFAIRNESS. HELP US TO STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR PROMISES AS WE WALK IN YOUR NAME. AMEN.
