Hebrews 11:23-28   (NRSV)
“By faith Moses was hidden by his parents for three months after his birth, because they saw that the child was beautiful; and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called a son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to share ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered abuse suffered for the Christ to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to the reward. By faith he left Egypt, unafraid of the king’s anger; for he persevered as though he saw him who is invisible. By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.”

“By faith…” Not by sight, but by faith is how the people who put their trust and hope in God are to live in this world. Moses is but one of the many examples we have, both in the Bible and our own lives, of how to live life by faith and not by sight.
“By faith…” is a choice that must be made when we have choices to make if want to be counted among the people of God.
