    2 Corinthians 4:16-18

    Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward
    man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day
    by day.

    For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working
    for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 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.

    I have that part of that same excerpt on a plaque with a picture of an Old Oak tree in the back ground. One of my personal favorites.

    Thanks Solo

    JB Phillips says it this way:
    This is the reason why we never collapse. The outward man does indeed suffer wear and tear, but every day the inward man receives fresh strength. These little troubles (which are really so transitory) are winning for us a permanent, glorious and solid reward out of all proportion to our pain. For we are looking all the time not at the visible things but at the invisible. The visible things are transitory: it is the invisible things that are really permanent.

    Isn't that beautiful?
