Meditation Thought: ““Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” (Matthew 5:6)
“Embrace righteousness! Though the outside appearance of it may appear to be hard, and not tasty – once you taste it, and become accustomed to it, the flavor becomes very pleasant, and in fact, righteousness has an even more delicious ‘soft center’ hidden until you really start to eat of the righteousness with enthusiasm! Not only shall your hunger be satisfied, but your taste buds shall be delighted too. Your hunger for all that is good in life – spiritual and physical – shall be satisfied, for your hunger truly is the wish for the in-filling of My Spirit. And My Spirit is contained in righteousness. My Spirit is the delicious ‘soft center’, which will satisfy your hunger and not only satisfy it, but give the ecstasy of it being a delight to your palate.
You choose the food you eat; you can indulge in ‘junk food’ of ego-building thoughts and deeds, of thoughts and deeds that take advantage of others – or you can feed upon the righteous, love-giving, self-sacrificing thoughts and deeds which serve as the containment of My Spirit. You may temporarily be deceived, or you may not resist the junk food at times – but if you are determined to pursue the healthy diet of My righteous food, you will partake of great quantities of it – enabling you to, as you grow in Christ, become expert at determining it by appearance, and also be able to develop a stronger will-power in resisting the ‘junk food’ and reaching for the righteous food.”
