“[Moses] regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward”Hebrews 11:26
Are You Committed to Live by Your Values?
After, reading today’s devotional in Hebrews 11:26 Do you believe its beneficial to chose Gods values or the world? Why?
The first resolution: Choose to be who God wants you to be. The second resolution: Choose short-term pain for long-term gain.And then Moses made a third life-shaping resolution: He chose God’s values, not the world’s. And that’s why God used him!
Hebrews 11:26 says, “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” (NIV).Moses made a value judgment. He clarified what mattered most to him.Let me ask you: What matters most in your life? What are the top three or four values in your life? Can you name them easily?
Moses chose God’s values over the world’s values. Why is this so important? Because if you don’t decide what’s important in your life, other people are going to decide for you. They’re going to push you into their mold. And you’re going to live your life by their values, not yours. You’ve got to decide what’s most important to you and then live by those values.
