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.
