Spiritual Hunger And Thirst
Do we have that kind of hunger and thirst? We do have physical hunger and thirst that should not be neglected but if those occupy 100% of our time, energy and efforts, we are not wise or practical because those hungers only meet temporal (temporary) needs. Spiritual hunger and thirst are more important because they are about eternal needs. If you have no spiritual hunger and thirst you need changed priorities and you need to taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalms 34:8.

Selah.

John 4:32: But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. 33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? 34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
John 6:32: Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
John 7:37: In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
