The mechilta brings that when klal israel was collecting money from the mitzrim moshe rabenu was taking care of the aztmos yosef (bones of Yosef). The mepharshim ask 'borrowing money from the mitzrom is also a mitzva from hashem so why didn't moshe go and be mekaim it why is he looking for mitzvos to do?'

So I want to say a chidush that moshe had two mitzovs that had to be done one gashmis and one ruchni (atzmos yosef) even though borrowing money was a mitzva still there was an element of gashmius, therefore moshe preferred to look for a mitzva that was a more ruchnius dik mittzva and run away from any gashmis.
