Momentary Pleasure vs. Everlasting Rewards

“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. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible.” Hebrews 11:24-27

We are to look on in faith at the reward the Lord has to offer because the treasures of Heaven are much greater and are not fleeting like anything the world has to offer.

No sinful pleasures are worth sacrificing what the Lord has to offer.

Lord, bring this to my remembrance when I face any temptation to sin against You. Even the desire to sin is fleeting and You’ve proven the consequences to be much greater than any minor and momentary pleasure. Thank You for Your truth and Your guidance. In Jesus’ holy and matchless name. Amen.
