An Eventual Adding Up

Aren't you glad that God works with a new mathematical system, one based entirely upon what He adds to us?

What seems useless or bothersome today may be of the greatest value tomorrow. So many of the little things we work our way through, perhaps barely hanging on to what we've come to know about God, are adding up. You know, a sort of "light and momentary affliction that's achieving for us an eternal weight of glory" kind of thing. (2 Corinthians 4:17)

I bet you're glad.

Since it's the weekend, I offer an odd take on that whole concept.

(This comic is from a blog I enjoy, Lots of good stuff for laughs . . . unless you don't need to laugh today. Sure, a little bit here and there is a little bit off color, but you can handle that, right?)

    Thank you Ralph! I definitely like God's mathematical system! ... I needed the reminder of how he adds... :)
