2 Corinthians 4: 16-18:”Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the invisible man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Here is a great principle. A proper focus on our glorious future with Christ will empower us to endure any kind of trouble. Working means ‘producing’ or ‘accomplishing.’ Trials are light and temporary compared to the eternal glory we will receive. Look means to ‘keep one’s eye on’ or to contemplate. In order not to lose heart, we as believers need to shift our focus from that which is seen to that which is not seen, from temporary problems to the eternal rewards we will receive.
Caroline, Rose and I wish all our friends a wonderful – safe – happy – and glorious weekend!
