Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

The question stirs in my mind an old Western movie. The cowboy is walking across the desert, carrying an empty canteen. His water supply is depleted yet he stumbles and crawls through the hot sand in search of water. He is desperate. Nothing will satisfy nor save him unless he finds water immediately. He drags on in his search, using every ounce of strength from his weakened condition to find the water he needs.
