Hey, girls! I’m memorizing these verses and wanted to share.
2 Corinthians 3: 17-18 – “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory: While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
God has been showing me a lot lately that the things of this world are not the most important thing. They won’t last in eternity. Christians should have an eternal mindset, thinking about how our choices and actions effect eternity. Our possessions here won’t come with us when we die. The things that truly matter are souls. A Christian’s focus should be on saving souls and pleasing our Savior. This leads to a true, lasting, eternal reward. This will pay off in the end. You may miss out on things here. But pleasing God is worth it. These verses can also apply to temptation. It’s afflicting! But, stay strong in God’s strength (Colossians 1:11) and He’ll reward you.

I really needed these verses right now. I’ve been really sick for months now, and they think I might permanently have a slightly lame leg, and a weak arm, and problems with my hearing and eyesight. There could also be other things they haven’t found yet. Now I’m going to think of it all as ‘a moment’. 🙂 Thank you; your posting those verses really helped.:)
PS Your last verse of the week really touched me as well, especially your story. It was amazing, and exactly what I needed to read at the time.:)
