Hunger of an Infant

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 5:1-12 (day seven)

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

In the moment of this writing, an infant is fast asleep in my arms. As this blessing from God sleeps so soundly, I know it is only a matter of time before he wakes and will begin to wail. His crying is a signal, a literal cry for help, and the only way to cure it is to give him what he wants: milk!

Questions begin to race through my mind. Do I crave righteousness like this? Do I wake up with a longing and yearning to be spiritually nourished? Do I have a one track mind to find the One who can give me what I want? Will I make sure that everyone around me knows Who I need? Even if I try to satisfy my hunger with other things, nothing quite quenches my desire like the Bread of Life.
