Phil 1:23; Heb 3:5-6
Philippians 1:23 King James Version (KJV)
23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
Philippians 1:23 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
23 It is a hard choice to make. I want to die and be with Christ, because that would be much better.

These are my thoughts.
We have a greater desire to be with Christ than to be in this world but while we are here we should desire to bring Him glory thru serving Him.
Hebrews 3:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Hebrews 3:5-6 Good News Translation (GNT)
5 Moses was faithful in God's house as a servant, and he spoke of the things that God would say in the future. 6 But Christ is faithful as the Son in charge of God's house. We are his house if we keep up our courage and our confidence in what we hope for.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
5 Moses was who God gave the law thru but God also gave him words about Jesus and what He would later do, even though Moses may have not fully understood this.
6 Jesus is higher then Moses because Jesus is Lord. We have our hope because of Jesus and we should not fear because He is with us.
