Matthew 5:6 shows us how to be truly satisfied, but we truly thirst and hunger after righteousness?  I know I have fallen short of that or just do the bare minimum to do what God wants me to do.  So what can we do to fix that?

Today, we focus on ways to strive after the mindset of being "all in" in going after righteousness!  Please be inspired and remember to keep your eyes on Jesus!
