God has given us choices in life. We can choose to live for short term or long term rewards.
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.
- Hebrews 11:25-26
New International Version
The Bible acknowledges that there is some pleasure in sin, even though it quickly passes and leaves the sinner feeling more empty and unsatisfied than before. The Bible also acknowledges that there is some affliction in godliness, even though that quickly passes too. Yet the reward for godliness far outstrips any pleasure in sin.
It is easy to be deceived by the temporary benefits of wealth, popularity, status, and achievement, and to blind to the long-range benefits of God's kingdom. Faith helps us look beyond the world's value system to see the eternal values of God's Kingdom. Don’t forfeit eternal rewards for temporary benefits. Like Moses, be willing to make sacrificed now for greater rewards later. God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
