This earth is so temporary yet we live like we are going to be here forever. I think we are blinded by our desires of earthly possessions and lose sight of what really matters. Focus on the unseen because it is eternal. The unseen being Christ and our heavenly home. But, we focus on him, all our priorities fall in place. We get discouraged easily by our faults but if our heart is given to him we will never lose that hope.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
