Matthew 5:6
"Desperate Craving"

Here we come to the fourth Beatitude with which Jesus opens his Sermon on the Mount.  Jesus speaks about a desperate craving that is produced in people when they hear and believe the gospel.  They will begin hungering and thirsting for the healing and restoration of every broken relationship, between people and God, between people and other people, and even between people and the created realm.  This hunger is for nothing less than the Shalom which God desires for the whole of His creation.
