The Temporal Trap

in New Life Pain/Suffering

Feeling trapped today? I'm Ron Moore and this is the Bible Minute.

One of life's biggest dangers is the trap of the temporal. We are showered with "feel better now," "be entertained now," "you need this now." When we are caught in the trap of the temporal we will most certainly "lose heart."

But followers of Christ are called to an "eternal glory" that far outweighs temporal pleasures or pain. Here's how Paul described it to the people in Corinth.

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
