Small Acts of Discipline

In George Whitefield's journal entry of November 14, 1738, he wrote of the hardships he endured during an ocean voyage from America to England. "These things, though little in themselves, are great in their consequences; and, whosoever despiseth small acts of bodily discipline, it is to be feared, will insensibly lose his spiritual life by little and little." 2Corinthians 4:17 states, "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory."
