Jesus said, “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled”. Matthew 5:6
A good appetite is one of nature’s ways of helping us to a better, healthier, and happier life. Many things are derived from this appetite. A sound body, of course, is the main object of the appetite. When the appetite is satisfied, many other things happen. We grow, develop, keep the other organs of the body supplied with energy, and provide for our overall welfare. I think these are some of the things that Jesus wanted us to learn regarding the spiritual nature of man, as well.
The one who hungers and thirsts after righteousness has learned one of the greatest lessons of life. He knows he cannot live without spiritual food. He knows also that his effectiveness begins to decrease at the moment he is made weaker. As a result, he is always in Bible Study to try and supply the food so vital in the development of a strong spiritual body. He studies that he may be of assistance to others who are also hungry. He, above all others, is always ready and willing to learn more, not being shackled by pre-conceived ideas and old leftover food. He knows that as with natural food, spiritual food must be regularly consumed. HOW IS YOUR APPETITE? There will be a spiritual feast, Sunday. ARE YOU HUNGRY?
