Vietnam is the 6th largest producer of coconuts in the world. Buying a fresh coconut to drink is such a common thirst quencher and convenient to purchase. A green outer layer reveals a young, off-white husk easily sliced at the top to get to the coconut water to drink. This entrepreneur digs even further for the soft coconut meat on a hot summer day.
“God blesses those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.” Matthew 5:6
Do we have in our mind what it means to hunger and thirst? To want something so desperately to quell the pains of our stomach or mouth?
Seeking to be righteous means being right with God. It means living in a way that is pleasing to Him and that honors Him.
Lift a prayer right now to God that you might hunger and thirst for Him and also ask that He be victorious in Vietnamese lives that are seduced by worldly things and find satisfaction in Him alone.
