What Is Unseen…

Death Opens a Door

“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 producing for us an eternal weight of glory that is far beyond comparison. 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

  1. At first glance I read monetary instead of momentary – siginificant of our times perhaps…

  8. I love C. S. Lewis. This quote makes me think of the last book in the “Chronicles of Narnia,” where Narnia is being destroyed and darkness and despair seem to be taking over. But then they discover that the Narnia they have loved was only a shadow of things to come, and the REAL Narnia has arrived. (It gives me hope as I look around at the world today.)

  9. Just last week we attended the funeral service for my husband’s lovely Aunt Vera. She was 92 when she met Jesus…and SO ready to meet Him. In that context, this quote from C.S. Lewis is extra-special. Thanks for the lovely post.

    This is one of my all-time “go to” verses in hospital visits or other pastoral care situations.
