Exhortation: Blessed are the Hungry

Human history begins in hunger, and hunger—whether for bread or for land or for glory or for God—motivates much of human history. Hunger is a sign of our radical dependence. This is why Jesus says: “Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied.” What are we hungry for? The Bible calls us to hunger after righteousness, after the One who is Righteous. Jesus calls us today, for He knows and we must know that we are dependent on the food He gives us at His table.[1]


[1] See Leithart, Blessed are the Hungry, 147
