God does not want us to place significant value into this life.
Yes, he wants us to live right, take care of ourselves, work (a job can be a stay a home mom and etc… duty is whatever pertains to an individual’s mission within life), and be responsible. However, the Lord does not advise us to invest ourselves into this world of temporary uselessness as it is perishing away.
A new heaven brought down to a new earth.
