The rich man was satisfied, but God called him a fool and took his life and condemned his soul. (Luke 12:20)
The whole church at Laodicea was satisfied, but Jesus said they did not know that they were actually wretched, and miserable and poor and blind and naked (Revelation 3:16-22).
That’s about how wrong a “satisfied” person can be.
Satisfied? Are you, now? The Pharisee that went into the temple to pray was satisfied with himself, and even glad he was not as the Publican (Luke 18:10-14). But Jesus said that the satisfied Pharisee was not justified like the sin-conscious Publican was!
The wise man warned: “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12).
