Thirst

Thirst

THIRST

Priceless. The thirsty life of a kitten.

Adorable Blue reminding me of the deeper meaning of thirst.

That its not just for the body but the soul.

To thirst for righteousness.

Thirst, we all feel it, crave it, created to be thirsty but not all thirst is good, profitable, edifying for what the flesh and heart desire. There’s a thirst for righteousness, and then there’s thirst for quite the opposite.

Blue’s thirst is good, momentarily replenishes that which is lacking, hydrating his body so he can function and go about his day playfully running and jumping. Yet there’s a deeper longing for humanity, a thirst only a God ordained vacuum can fill.

“What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself.” – Blaise Pascal, Pensées VII(425)

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. – Matthew 5:6
