By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.
“In full knowledge of what he was doing, Moses ‘refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,’ which must have seemed an act of folly by worldly standards. He had open to him a place of great prestige and could have lived comfortably among the Egyptian aristocracy. But he gave it all up” (Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary, 1994, on Hebrews 11:24).
The story of Moses is intricately connected with faith. Here we see evidence of God’s calling of Moses away from the privileged but pagan lifestyle he had grown up with. Accepting God’s calling is an act of faith.
