March 8: satisfy (Deuteronomy 7-9; Mark 15)

I want to be satisfied. I think that’s a good place to be. It is also consistent with scripture. Whether it is what we’ve been reading in the Old Testament or the New Testament, we are promised a place in life where we will be satisfied. Call it the Promised Land or the Kingdom of God. So to be satisified and to seek to be satisfied is appropriate.

But then I read how Pilate wanted to satisfy the crowd (Mark 15:15). I read the chapters from Deuteronomy that describe how the people kept turning from God in order to satisfy themselves. Who do I want to satisfy?

What we are learning from scripture is that only in satisfying God do we find true satisfaction.Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God (Deuteronomy 8:11).
