17For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

Paul was in prison and facing possible death.  He was beaten, stoned, whipped and ship-wrecked.  All that and he describes them as light and momentary troubles.  Lord, the troubles in  my life are so small compared to the sufferings of so many of Your servants.  I am sorry I have ever complained.  And they are suffering because the preach Your good news.  I am suffering because of my own foolish decisions and sins.  And really, am I suffering at all?  Lord, should I be doing so much more for You?  Help me bring You glory Lord, in small ways or larger ways, Your will be done. *2Corinthians4*
