There is no downside to living your life as a son of GOD,PSALM 103 is proof of that truth!==A Psalm of David.
103 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

2
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;

3
Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;

4
Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;

5
Who satisfies your [a]years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Sons of God
(Read Galatians 3:26-29)

I agree it is a wonderful, great privilege to live as a son of God. Real Christians enjoy great privileges under the gospel; and are no longer accounted servants, but sons; not now kept at such a distance, and under such restraints as the Jews were. Having accepted Christ Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, and relying on him alone for justification and salvation, they become the sons of God. But no outward forms or profession can secure these blessings; for if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. In baptism we put on Christ; therein we profess to be his disciples. Being baptized into Christ, we are baptized into his death, that as he died and rose again, so we should die unto sin, and walk in newness and holiness of life. The putting on of Christ according to the gospel, consists not in outward imitation, but in a new birth, an entire change. He who makes believers to be heirs, will provide for them. Therefore our care must be to do the duties that belong to us, and all other cares we must cast upon God. And our special care must be for heaven; the things of this life are but trifles. The city of God in heaven, is the portion or child's part. Seek to be sure of that above all things.

“Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the sons of God…” (1 John 3:1).

God’s purpose in creating us and redeeming us was that He might have many sons like the Lord Jesus. The Bible says that Jesus is “bringing many sons to glory” (Hebrews 2:10).

God wants His sons to have the power to live as the sons of God, so He has given us “the Spirit of Christ.” The Bible says, “Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father” (Galatians 4:6).

As a son of God, I can bring honor or dishonor to my Father by the way I live and the things I do. Instead of saying, “I don’t see any harm in it; besides, everybody is doing it,” my thought should be, “How can I bring the most enjoyment to my heavenly Father who loves me so much?”

So YES I agree nothing could be better than to live our lives as sons for God! Thanks to Jesus Christ.
