Summary
Verses 24-26 give us a good look at how Moses, an exemplary person of faith, lives. The curtain is pulled back and we are invited into his inner life to see the thinking and choosing that under girds his actions. Fundamentally, he is a person who trusts that God is for him and his enduring future is absolutely bright (see Heb. 11:1 and Heb. 11:6). Moses eyes were fixed on the glorious future that God promised him. He was "looking unto the reward." Because his eyes were fixed on the reward it radically changed his thinking about what really mattered in this life. He didn't have his head in the sand. He realized that if he put his hope in the coming Messiah and acted accordingly it would bring reproach (and all the sufferings of that reproach). But as he "considered" the reproach which included not only immediate suffering but also future glory beyond all comparison, then the treasures of Egypt (wealth, sex, and power) paled in comparison. This careful thinking and evaluating freed and compelled him to make the best choice. This choice was surprising on the surface because it involved choosing the pathway of suffering over the pathway of ease. But he realized that the treasures of Egypt only afforded "fleeting pleasures" that wouldn't last. Instead he chose the reproach of Christ and the mistreatment that's an inevitable part of being associated with the people of God which lead to an eternally happy future. It was this choice that grounded his life-changing, career ending decision that he would once and for all give up all the privileges and security of being the son of Pharaoh's daughter.

Commentary Notes
11:23 The parents of Moses preserved his life in hope. beautiful. Cf. Ex. 2:2; Acts 7:20. they directly disregarded the king’s command to drown the boy in the Nile (Ex. 1:22). George Guthrie, Hebrews (The NIV Application Commentary; Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1998), 380. the author of Hebrews follows the LXX in using the word asteion, a word meaning “beautiful, attractive.” The only other New Testament text to use the word is Acts 7:20, where we are told that Moses was “beautiful before God.” This probably communicates a superior quality about the child. Thus, the NIV translates Hebrews 11:23 with the phrase “no ordinary child.” The writer, therefore, depicts the parents as having spiritual insight into his significance. George Guthrie, Hebrews (The NIV Application Commentary; Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1998), 380. 11:24–26 Moses refused the sinful privileges of Egypt, including those of being the son of Pharaoh’s daughter (Ex. 2:10). Instead he identified with God’s people (Ex. 2:11–12) and thus sought God’s reward (Heb. 10:35; 11:6). fleeting pleasures of sin. Contrasted with eternal reward (cf. Ps. 16:11). reproach of Christ. As Christ (the true Israel, e.g., Matt. 2:15) truly suffered on behalf of the people of God, so too Moses, who similarly suffered on behalf of the people, is said to bear Christ’s reproach. Hence Moses serves as a model for Christians to endure such reproach (Heb. 10:33; 13:13). ESV The author already has made much of the virtue of standing with those under duress because of their commitment to God (e.g., 10:32–34). Moses chose his biological family over his adoptive family at great personal cost: loss of wealth, relinquishment of status, and intense mistreatment. The author explains that he “regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt.” ... the sense of this phrase may be understood more accurately as “the disgrace experienced by Christ.” P. E. Hughes comments: [This disgrace] was not simply the reproach accepted by identifying himself with the people of God but, more precisely, the reproach of the coming Messiah with whom he was united by faith. Hence (as Stephen reminded his accusers) his assurance to the Israelites: “God will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren as he raised me up” (Acts 7:37; cf. Deut. 18:15); and hence, also, the rebuke of Jesus Christ to his adversaries: “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote of me” (John 5:46). Thus Moses experienced the same kind of reproach experienced later by Christ—rejection faced by a prophet standing on the side of God, proclaiming the word of the Lord in boldness against an ungodly generation. George Guthrie, Hebrews (The NIV Application Commentary; Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1998), 381. 11:27 By faith he left Egypt could refer to the exodus (though it would then not be in chronological order with v. 28), which would explain the reference to Moses’ seeing him who is invisible (i.e., in the burning bush, Ex. 3:1–4:17; cf. Heb. 11:1). Or it could refer to Moses’ earlier escape from Pharaoh (Ex. 2:14–15). cf. This verse seems to discount Exodus 2:14, which says that Moses was afraid concerning the consequences of his act of killing the Egyptian. But the author of Hebrews wishes to emphasize the boldness of Moses’ actions rather than his negative emotion of dread. He made a decision to leave Egypt, and that step the writer understands as a step of faith. George Guthrie, Hebrews (The NIV Application Commentary; Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing House, 1998), 381. 11:28 By faith he kept the Passover. Moses celebrated Passover before seeing the deliverance it would bring (Ex. 12:1–32). Crossway Bibles, The ESV Study Bible (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2008), 2381.
