It was by faith that Moses, when he grew up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to share the oppression of God’s people instead of enjoying the fleeting pleasures of sin. He thought it was better to suffer for the sake of Christ than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward.Hebrews 11:24-26
The Great Reward
The faith of Moses was so strong according to these verses. He grew up in luxury living in the house of pharaoh. He was treated as a prince. However when he became an adult, he chose not to identify with the Egyptians, but instead to identify with his people: the Israelites. They were oppressed by the pharaoh and his people. They lived in slavery. According to these verses, Moses gave up the fleeting pleasures of sin and instead walked with his people. He knew he had a greater reward than anything the Egyptians could give him.
What about you? Are you living your life in such a way that shows that you are looking for a greater reward than anything this earth can give you?
A Prayer to Remember
You are worth more than anything this world could ever give. Thank you for heaven. Amen.
