By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. (Hebrews 11:24-25)

Hebrews 11

This chapter is often referred to as the hall of faith. There is a lot that can be learned about what faith is through the stories of these old testament characters. I will be writing about pursuing faith soon as part of the series on 2 Timothy 2:22. But the part that stuck out to me the most is where Moses gave up the Egyptian lifestyle in faith of a more complete life with the God of Israel. He chose a more difficult life that was void of earthly pleasures. He was heavenly minded, not considering himself a citizen of this world. Father, thank you for the home that you are building for me in heaven with you. I am sorry for pursuing worldy pleasures that distract me from you. Please remind me that eternity with you is far better than all the things this world can give.
