“By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.” (Hebrews 11:24-26)

Live it up? Moses could have chosen to live it up with the best of today’s children of powerful politicians.
Don’t get distracted with religion? Moses could have chosen to go with the grain and follow his adopted culture’s popular polytheistic ways.
Live for today? Moses could have chosen to see this world as the end all be all when it comes to achievement.
Plain and simple – Moses could have chosen a lot of different things, but he chose a “life for good” over “the good life”, and such is the call that God’s anointed has given us today.
“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:43-39)
