Thought of the Day !!

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
                                                        Matthew 5:6 (NRSV)
Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness have a deep desire to be right with God and to have a right relationship with God.  That's basically what righteousness is.  So Jesus teaches us that if we truly want to be filled with God through the Holy Spirit, then we will.  But how many of us truly desire that? 
Something to think about today - Do you really want to be filled with the Holy Spirit, especially if it might mean going places you now don't want to or acting in different ways or giving up some things you'd rather hold on to?
If you truly hunger and thirst for God, you will receive God.  But I think that many people claiming to be Christians don't really have a hunger or thirst for righteousness.  Imagine what this world would be like if we all did.
In the love of Christ,
