An Assistant who has thirst

This is another article talking about the beatitudes, which are a revelation from God directly to His servants.

We have already spoke about three and today we will highlight another with a sincere hope that each assistant becomes aware of the richness that exists in every teaching, but especially on the importance of putting them into practice.

It is very easy to obtain knowledge, in fact, many are full of beautiful words and know many beautiful teaching in which they agree and find very important, but the problem is that they don’t bring it to their day-to-day life. They don’t apply it to their life.

It is important to be clear, my friends, that it’s not worth anything just knowing the teachings if we don’t constantly practice the Word of God.

We just need to use our intelligence and think: What kind of benefit do we have in just being aware that exercise is good for your health, but not do it? Or to know that proper nutrition is the most effective way to stay healthy if we continue to have terrible eating habits?
Can you understand it now? Words alone are completely worthless if there isn’t sacrifice, a surrender. This is something that only you can do for yourself, no one can work out for you or change your eating habits, you must do it yourself. The same applies when we talk about using our faith, no one can use it for you. It’s something only you exclusively can do.

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
 for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6) 

What is justice after all?

Generally, what immediately comes to mind when we talk about justice is injustice. Sadly, there are many assistants that nourish this supposed sense of “Injustice” inside of them.  This happens when they feel misunderstood, misinterpreted, when someone calls their attention for no apparent reason. Her “hunger” and “thirst” is in favor of her selfishness, in not looking bad, in wanting to see her problems and dilemmas solved.

This righteousness is something very deep, which has no connection to our exterior.

It is about having hunger and thirst to see God in your life;
Hunger and thirst to please God above your own will;
Hunger and thirst to live only by your faith;
Hunger and thirst to be sensitive to God’s call;
Hunger and thirst to glorify God with your life, by being righteous with your actions;
Hunger and thirst to have God’s direction and inspiration in your life, to help the afflicted;
Those people will be satisfied!

Unfortunately, many have left the faith because their hunger and thirst was for a wrong type of justice. They did not know how to wait on God and take advantage of the difficulties to become stronger.

Based on today’s article, I ask you, have you ever analyzed the beatitudes in this way before?
