Whatever this life and this World have to offer, it's only for a little while! But Salvation, souls, children and service for the Lord are forever, they are eternal! "For this World passes away and the fashion thereof, but he that doeth the Will of God abideth forever! For the things which are seen are temporal--just for a little time--and the things which are not seen are eternal!" (1Jn.2:17; 2Cor.4:18)
Moses "had respect unto the recompense of the reward". He looked beyond today and its trials because he saw Jesus and had an eye on Eternity and its great rewards. "For he counted the riches of Christ greater than all the riches of Egypt!" (Heb.11:26)--The greatest, most powerful and richest nation on Earth in that day, of which he could have been Pharaoh. He counted the riches of Christ far greater than all the riches of this whole World combined!
If we pay the same price and make the same sacrifices, we, too, can look forward to eternal rewards and everlasting glory! By giving our all to the Lord we are going to receive so much more.--What a small price to pay for all we're getting in return!
