Matthew 5:6 (NLT)

6 God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice,
for they will be satisfied.


God is large and in charge. There is nothing that happens without his knowledge. The problem lies in human perception. We want this justice to happen within an “acceptable” time frame, which meets our standards. It is important to remember that God sees with eternal eyes, knowing the end from the beginning.


  1. 5:6 Or for righteousness.
