I encourage you to read 2Cor 4:15-18. Verse 17 says, “For our light affliction (tribulation, trouble, persecution), which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” Notice, Paul encourages us to count our afflictions as “light“, but the exceeding eternal glory as “weighty“.

People don’t even bat an eye while giving someone an untruthful compliment, or saying “I’ve missed you!” when they really haven’t. How many people will admit they lie?

My 6 year old son decided he didn’t like any of the vegetables that were on the table; he only wanted meat and the dinner rolls. I told him it was fine if he didn’t eat anything except a piece of meat and a roll (at first, he refused even the meat), but he was only allowed to have one roll and he would have no chocolate pie afterward.
