Vanity

To live a worthy life  is so difficult in this world. The world is packed with much of vanity and less of righteousness. Things of the world are so attractive; enticing and so pleasurable to the mind, that we find it difficult to restrain our curiosity. Our curiosity runs wild- desiring to explore every single created thing. Our curious mind craves for the gratification1 of  every worldly thing.

Adolescence is the most dangerous stage of human life-  this is where the tempter lures us with every kind of vanity-  We get drifted from the right path- we get distracted the most. We only come to our senses when our wrong choices hurt us; our wrong decisions betray us.


Vanity increasingly  entangles us into every kind of curiosity- to seek one satisfaction after another. It makes us forget God. Furthermore, it makes us doubt  in the existence of God. Consequently, it makes us incapable of loving one another. For when Vanity dwells in our heart, it leaves no place for God's Love. Vanity almost succeeds in turning us into an Atheist.

Vanity is so deceiving and dangerously intoxicating, that it binds us to remain in the state of deception- all our life. Furthermore, it numbs our faith in God- we cannot feel the presence of God; we do not feel the need for God. Our wrong priorities in living our life, leads us into every kind of mess- our world turns into hell.

Only a miracle of Grace can save us from the entanglement of the world and bring us closer to God.





1. We get into the habit of satisfying the cravings of our hungry mind- only to leave our heart completely dissatisfied.
