Part 5: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
The fourth beatitude is a beautiful description of the disciple of Jesus living a life of flourishing. Their roots are seeking, growing, and burying themselves into God and his word seeking to find all the vital nutrients for a life in the Spirit. They understand the joy they seek is not to be found in the empty junk foods of selfishness and materialism, the pride this world offers, but in a deeper relationship with God.
