Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 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 Corinthians 4:16-18.
Despite the temptation to be discouraged within, and the physical weakness of their bodies, God’s servants know God’s daily renewal and are motivated by the prospect of glory to come. They do not lose heart. Their current trials are light in comparison with the weight of that glory that will be theirs. [The Bible Panorama.]
