Jars of Clay (2 Corinthians 4:7-18)
1) Paul was "afflicted...but not crushed; perplexed but not driven to despair; persecuted but not forsaken; struck down but not destroyed" because of the power of God in his life. How has God's power carried you through difficult situations?
2) How has enduring through suffering helped to enhance your witness for Christ? How can your endurance through those trials benefit others?
3) In the midst of pain, what can we do to shift our focus from what is seen and temporary to what is unseen and eternal? How does keeping an eternal perspective help?
