Blessed are... #4

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Again there is the value of recognizing a need, seeing a hole that needs to be filled.

Thinking everything is all figured out, complete, finished, means there is no room for improvement (so the unacknowledged hole still remains).

Righteousness is the state approved by God. So, a desire to have his heart and character should be right on the money.

I think this hunger is both for oneself (personal) and for the world (the kingdom of God).

I was thinking of the fulfillment of righteousness, and I think it weaves into your last statement. As Jesus "being" that fulfillment, and the "place" of fulfillment at the cross. The mystery of losing your life to gain life. How much are we willing to sacrifice. It wasn't just personal righteousness on the cross, it was the righteousness of " all " creation.
