“For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory. So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 HCSB
While I treat myself to a vitamin C facial mask in hopes of reducing wrinkles, then follow it with a different wrinkle-reducing serum, I start to question the underlying reason for my mid-life wrinkle-reduction, youth-seeking frenzy. Perhaps, even after years of Bible study, reading books and listening to sermons, I am still grasping for a superficial cure to fix much deeper, more difficult life issues.
When the craziness of the world feels like a vortex pulling us to an unknown destination, we may find ourselves desperately reaching for absurd controls to slow the swirl. When we do this we run the risk of missing out on the eternal lesson learned in the eye of the storm. How many storms will it take you and I to remember the hard seasons will pass, and the glory of eternity outshines even the darkest times?🚦
