For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, -2 Corinthians 4:17
Grapes or olives were placed in a round stone trough, and a massive rock crushed out the rich oil. The heavy stone was, in Greek, thlipsis, the word translated “tribulation.” God’s covenant people cannot lose—even in tribulation. Its crushing weight becomes the means by which Christ’s followers flow with the best. Grapes became refreshing wine and oil provided light. God’s people under pressure provide encouragement and illumination to all around them.
