Our momentary light affliction

(Arthur Pink)

"Our momentary light affliction is producing
 for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight
 of glory!" 2 Corinthians 4:17

Afflictions are lightócompared with what we really
deserve. They are light whenócompared with the
sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But perhaps their real
lightness is best seenóby comparing them with the
eternal weight of glory which is awaiting us!
