2 Cor. 4:17-18
“OUR ETERNITY IS more important than anything that can happen in the few short decades we spend in this life. No matter how much suffering takes place now, it is far more critical to settle where we will be once that suffering ends”
Jim Davis, “Why Doesn’t God Do Something?” Why Me? A Godly View of Suffering, Leafwood Publishers, p. 101
17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 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” (2 Cor. 4:17-18).
