2 Corinthians 4:16-18

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.


Q: What does verse 17 say about your present troubles? Where must we ‘fix our gaze’?

Q: How does this scripture inspire you to find a new perspective on all things? Does a change of perspective need to only happen if you are having troubles, or can a change of perspective lead you into even greater growth?

Q: How does your perspective affect those around you? Can you be a testimony to God’s work in your life, based on how you view your life?
