"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."
This morning I am getting tangled up in definitions and splitting hairs. The meaning of this verse can change a little, I think, depending on how it is read. Is Jesus addressing those who seek a righteous life, or those who seek to treat others with justice and righteousness? Or, are these two interpretations ultimately saying the same thing? I know I need to think daily about treating people fairly and equally, and I have the opportunity to get better at that in my work.
Holy Lord, help me to treat everyone I meet fairly, and without any preconceived opinions or biases. May your Holy Spirit guide me in this. Amen
