Righteousness 12/27/09

Today we will talk about the topic of Righteousness.

Matthew 5:6 (New International Version)

6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Filled = satisfied, to fulfill or satisfy your desires

Righteous isn’t really a word that we hear talked about very often. When it is used, it’s brought up in a negative sense – that person is so self-righteous.

The word righteous really means to be approved. To have a deep sense of approval. Almost like having a verdict being rendered about you that you are worthy, you are approved.
