Romans 8:18, "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."
The wrong kind of comparison between "our present suffering and "the glory that will be revealed in us" is, when we are in pain and suffering and we feel sorry for ourselves, and we turn to other things besides God, and when we shut down and shut out others from ourselves, so no one can reach and help us. At that point we are putting worth on something temporal, and we are not making much of Jesus, we do not see his worth, and the worth of "the glory that will be revealed in us".
But we must compare the two in the right way... we must look to Jesus and see him and what he has done for us on the cross and what he is preparing for his children in eternity - “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit." (1 Corinthians 2:9-10a). We must see these things of so worthy of our attention, time and our life, so that when we are in any kind of suffering we would be able to say with the apostle Paul, my "present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us".
May the Lord help us all to see everything through his eyes...
