Matthew 5:6

Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
All Commentaries on Matthew 5:6 Go To Matthew 5

John Chrysostom

AD 407
All good which men do not from love of the good itself is unpleasing before God. He hungers after righteousness who desires to walk according to the righteousness of God; he thirsts after righteousness who desires to get the knowledge thereof. Such is the bounty of a rewarding God, that His gifts are greater than the desires of the saints. Or, this is again a promise of a temporal reward; for as covetousness is thought to make many rich, He affirms on the contrary that righteousness rather makes rich, for He who loves righteousness possesses all things in safety.
