2 Corinthians 4:16-18, Suffering: The Path to Glory

What are the “unseen” things Paul has in mind?
God is unseen (Hebrews 11:27).
The promises of God are unseen (Hebrews 11:1).
God has promised us a home–a perfect home:
A home where tombstones will never again litter the landscape;  A home where there is no war or want, no sickness or sorrow.  A home where there are no penitentiaries for there will be no crime;  A home where there is no temptation to battle, no selfishness to push down, no fleshly impulses to beat back;  A home where work is a joy, relationships are harmonious, and every experience is satisfying;  A home where worship wars are over and praise is our greatest delight;  A home where faith and hope are displaced by perfect love;  And best of all, a home where we will be like Jesus for we shall see him face to face.
