Scripture of the Day - May 5, 2012

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

God is not going to fill you if you are already full. If you want God's blessings you have to be hungry for them, you have to be thirsty for them.
So many people, even Christians, live their lives void of the blessings of God because they are too full of the junk of this world. Junk that may seem oh so important, junk that may bring a season of pleasure, junk that may give you a temporary high, but it will never truly satisfy and it will never bring you through the rough times.
We are living in an age where junk food is prevalent, and so readily available. It appeals to our taste buds and is easier to prepare than nutritional food. It is even cheaper than nutritional foods. Tasty, cheap and easy...what a trap we fall into. The consequences of this trap are becoming glaringly obvious to this generation with so many diseases like obesity and diabetes reaching epidemic proportions, and we are trying desperately to correct this downward spiral.
We are living in a age where junk spiritualism is prevalent too. It appeals to our carnal nature and is easier to follow after than God's righteousness. Folks, don't fall into that trap... the consequences are far greater...all you have to do is look at the world today for the evidence of junk spiritualism. BUT, the greatest consequence comes when we leave this world... it's a consequence of which there is no correction, it's final.
What do you hunger for? What do you thirst for? Hunger for God's righteousness and you will be filled. Thirst for God and you will never thirst again. You will be satisfied, more than you can imagine.
