Gas from The Tramp Preacher's Tank Jesus said, 'Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled'. Matt. 5:6.

Everybody knows that a good appetite is a bit of a treasure. That is all who have never lost it. There are several good reasons why a good appetite is a blessing.

First it is a mark of life. Only living things hunger and thirst. You know living trees pull from the Earth gallons of water every day. When a tree ceases to hunger and thrist it is DEAD.

Then it is a mark of normal and healthy life. The Physician asks, 'How is your appetite'. It is needful to keep the body in repair. It is also a roadway to growth.

Again it is a source of genuine enjoyment. Not much surpasses the enjoyment of a big meal with a big appetite. Mother's bread was so good largely because we had not developed dyspepsia.

There are other hungers than the hunger for bread. Jesus said, 'Man shall not live by bread alone'. Man shares hunger with all the lower animals. The dog eats and drinks but wonders not what is on the other side of the mountain. We are not even satisfied with the knowledge of what is on the other side of the mountain we want to know the Creator of it all. Phillip said, 'Show us the Father and we will be satisfied'. In this he voiced a hunger that is as old as man.
