As a rule we think of self-satisfaction as an undesirable, unattractive human quality—detached, complacent; but there is a real self-satisfaction that is most commendable, a satisfaction that is divinely perfect and purely legitimate. It is that self-satisfaction that comes to us by degrees in exact proportion as we waken to our true spiritual selfhood, our divinely reflected individuality, man in God's image and likeness, as the Scriptures describe him.
