2 Corinthians 4:16-18: “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even through our outward man is perishing, yet the inward 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 the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” A proper focus on our future with Christ will empower us to endure any kind of trouble. The outward man is the physical body. 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”. In order not to lose heart, the believer needs to shift his or her focus from that which is seen to that which is not seen, from temporary problems to the glorious eternal rewards he or she will receive.
