Daily Food for Thought


FOMO (the fear of missing out) is huge today. Always was really. Satan said to Eve ‘you’re gonna miss out if you follow what God is saying’ and she believed him. In Matthew 12:38-42 Jesus tells the religious leaders that they are missing what God is doing (and it’s bigger than Jonah and Solomon!) because they are looking everywhere for a sign. The only legitimate FOMO is the fear of missing what God is doing. We are at risk of this by being overly involved in such things as busyness and religion. Like the Leunig cartoon above, we miss out on the sunrise by being overawed with something less.
