The Beatitudes: “Hunger & Thirst”

Alastair, Derek, and Matt consider what it means to “hunger and thirst after righteousness.”

Continuing our series of discussions on the Beatitudes, Alastair, Derek, and Matt next consider “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness.” At first glance, this statement seems completely obvious. But when you dig deeper and look at the connected issues of justice, humility, and anger (as well as actual physical hunger) you discover so much more.
