The "Light Affliction" Method
So, what is one strategy for helping our spirits stay fresh and young, even as our bodies age and grow weary? Outlook!
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” (2 Corinthians 4:17) How we view what we go through helps to either crush us or challenge us. We all go through hardship or difficulty. But, do we see the value of those experiences to teach our spirits the worthy lessons of patience or endurance?
Keeping our eye on the prize, focusing on the magnificent weight of glory, can protect our spirits from bitterness and despair and keep us internally fresh.
