Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:1–4, NIV 1984).
My Musings – What are we hungry for? A better job? A bigger house? A fatter bank account? A comfortable retirement? Some would just like to have a job. Some would like to no longer live in the streets. Some have nothing in their wallet, much less a bank account. Some have no hope for retirement. But whether you have exorbitant or modest wants, there is something the we all need to hunger. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (Matthew 5:6, NIV 1984).
My Advice – Be filled, but stay hungry.
