Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled
5--looking at three each morning. Here are three more to add to yesterday's
"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they
shall be filled" (5:6).
The term "righteousness" is used in the New Testament some 92 times. Here
the Lord declares that those who feel a most intense desire for
righteousness shall obtain it. Isn't it interesting how the Lord uses
language here that is so practical? Man's two most primary needs are food
and water—hunger and thirst. If we're hungry or thirsty, we'll let nothing
stand in our way to have those needs fulfilled. So should be the intensity
of our desire to know the Word of God.
"Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy" (5:7).
This attitude has reference to the forgiveness of offences. There are so
many examples in the Bible of those who were merciful—read again the account
of Joseph and how he treated his brethren (Gen. 45:1-15); David, and how he
treated Saul (1 Sam. 24:16-22; and, the good Samaritan and how he treated
the weary traveler (Lk. 10:29-37).
"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God" (5:8).
This describes those who are free from evil desires and purposes—not just
moral purity, but a consistent love for God (Mk. 12:30). These are the ones
who now see God by faith. Add to that, these will one day see God face-to-
face in the heavenly after awhile.
Today, have heavenly attitudes. If you do, I know you'll have a great day!
