It is true that our two default options in life aren't very good, but there is another, infinitely-better path that we could miss if we stopped there
Does Your God Pay Attention?
Can the things, persons, or entities in whom we put our trust deliver salvation for us when we're in an otherwise-hopeless situation?

Life is not a game, but we need to make choices with an eye to succeeding in the "end-game", and towards getting to the outcome that we want.
