What on earth are you on earth for?

I really cannot tahan, seeing people bring posers and fakers, trying to be "cool", copying what the "cool" people do. Running their whole life round and round trying to get all these useless things, doing useless stuff and humans gladly revolve their lives around it. Its like closing your fist around sand or trying to grasp water. Practically useless. What's cool anyway?

What defines cool?
I tell you where your treasures are, there your heart is.
Where you put importance, where you give priority in your life, that's what "cool" is to you.
Who you look up to, the kind of people you're trying emulate, that's who you'll be.
So what is more important than making sure which "coolness" is the right "coolness" to follow?

So what is the RIGHT coolness?
Is it clubbing, partying, drinking, smoking, dressing like its too hot to have ANY clothes on, the labels you wear? The list could go on and on and on, but there's a reason why Vanity, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Envy and Pride take up 6 of the 7 Deadly Sins AND they're called the DEADLY sins for a reason too.

Isn't it a real waste of life?
You can't take these things with you when you die and they are seen as little to no value in the eyes of God. So why set store by earthly things when you should be store up for ourselves treasures in heaven?

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal" (Matthew 6:19-20).

I don't want to get to the end of my one and only life to realize that i've wasted it.
I mean, come on! Everyone wants their life to be of some importance, a life that counts, that MATTERS. But how do you live a life that counts?

It boils down to what on earth are you on earth for. Isaiah 43:6-7 makes it clear that God created us for this purpose : to glorify Him. We were designed to make much of God. In other words, you exist to point praise and glory to God.

Do all the clothes in your closet help you in your life purpose to glorify God?
Does all that alcohol gather up worth in heaven?
Do you want to get to the end of your life and find that you've wasted it?
I don't want to, and hopefully, i won't.
