“By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.”
-Moses demonstrated great faith in God by leaving his comfort zone (Pharaoh’s house) & moved ahead to lead the people out of captivity heeding to the voice of the Lord. Moses did not focus on the worldly treasures but looked to the reward of eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus instructs us to lay up our treasures in heaven where moth & rust cannot destroy or thieves cannot break in & steal, for where ones treasure is so will the heart be also (Mat 6:19-21). Jesus then explained that one can either love Him or money (Mat 6:24). This He demonstrated using the parable of a young man who followed all His commandments but his heart was inclined to money. When he asked Jesus what he needed to do to get eternal life, Jesus told him to sell everything & give to the poor then he would have treasures in heaven (Mat 19:20-22). By this; Jesus revealed that the young man thought he had money but the money had him. We note that money is not bad, in-fact God wants us have it but let it not come before the love of God & one forgets to focus on the reward of eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ.
God Almighty Father we thank You for giving us the gift of Your beloved Son Jesus Christ through Whom we believe & have life everlasting. Help us to maintain unwavering faith, detachment to the love of money, meekness in prosperity, attention to prayer, purity of heart, diligence in fulfilling our purpose, resignation to Your will, burning love for You & those who need us most, perseverance in faith unto grace to overcome temptations & to be worthy to stand before You through Your sanctification now until the end of time. Amen
