Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
What is eternity worth? Men so quickly exchange the short term and sacrifice the long term. If you were to gain the whole world for a lifetime and lose everything forever would that be worth it?
The best idea is to learn that this life of 100 years or less is just the beginning. You will live forever somewhere. You will never die nor will any of your loved ones. It is easy to think that what you see is all you get but that is not the way it is.
God made you a forever living person. Your body will die. You will leave this earth but you will live forever somewhere.
Make plans now for that life. Know what you want to do with your life.
Believe God and what He says. Only a fool would live without thinking. Are you a fool?
