Hunger that food cannot satisfy.
Hunger for something that goes far deeper than the physical. Hunger for what is Right, beyond our picayune rules and regulations.
“Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness”. I have had a negative reaction to this phrase because I always heard self-righteous in the place of righteousness. I now see that it means hungering for what is Right, longing for loving-kindness between all of humanity.
Can you love someone who is different from you? Can you eat dinner with them, sing in a choir with them? If it comes down to if they don’t have the code, they can’t buy food, will you look down on them or will you feed them?
I focus on my many blessings, but something gnaws at me within.
