I would guess majority of us would like something better for our lives. But there are exceptions. Take the example of Moses who at one time was living in the palace of Egypt. But when he saw the plight of his bethren he chose to be with them than enjoy easy life in the palace for a season.
As Christians and living in this world, there are temptations to join the world in pleasure etc. Of course not all pleasure are bad but there will be times that it is better to abstain even suffer.
Sin offers pleasure but the result is worst.
Jesus chose to go to the cross willingly that we may have life. Life freed from the ravages of sin that is destroying us. Life that is new and transformed or undergoing transformation.
Once and forever looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
