Matthew 5:6

Matthew 5:6 KJV Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
 
If we are to be happy God’s way, there must be a hungering and thirsting for righteousness. Righteousness is conforming our heart and life to God’s view of right and wrong. We must crave the idea of being aligned with how God sees right and wrong. Our view of right and wrong is often skewed by our sinful, fleshly nature. We often compare our view of right and wrong with others. We feel pretty good if we have a better sense of right and wrong than our neighbor. But how does our view of right and wrong compare with God’s viewpoint? That is the measure of righteousness. Let’s desire to have God’s view of right and wrong in our every day life.
