God has called us to be different, set apart. Romans 12:2 says "Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will."
We as Christians should stop chasing materialistic things, or even status but instead be looking to be changed from the inside out. We should change how our mind thinks so we can start to understand God's will in our life. Everyone should be asking themselves each day " What is God's will in my life?"
